About The Book
Just Think, I Could Have Been Normal: Growing up extraordinary with cerebral palsy
Just Think, I Could Have Been Normal is Nova Bannatyne-Eng's poignant story about growing up with cerebral palsy and, in particular, her challenges and triumphs. Nova was one of the first students with a significant disability to be integrated into, and graduate from, public school in British Columbia. Nova fought for acceptance, and countless others followed in her footsteps.
"I want you to meet a brave young woman - we don't normally run up against people who have got the kind of guts and the courage and the charm and obviously the talent of the Nova Bannatynes of this world."
"Nova gives insight into what people with disabilities want and need - the same as everyone else, to be respected, appreciated and loved. She also helps readers realize much of the solution has to come from within."
"Knowing Nova has been life-shaping for me as I have pursued a career based on seeing the able in disabled, thanks to her courageous and inspirational example. Nova is the bravest person I have ever known."
