Small Steps: The Year I Got Polio by Peg Kehret

In 1949, when Peg Kehret was twelve, she got polio. She was lucky, though. Her mom got her to the doctor quickly and so she got treatment sooner than many others. Even though she was paralyzed from the neck down for a few weeks, she never needed an iron lung to help her breathe so she got the treatment invented by Sister Kenny and that made all the difference. Small Steps chronicles her illness and long recovery. I highly recommend this book to everyone!
