In Chapter Eleven, Kat meets a tall, swaying woman, with a stutter and limp. It’s a fleeting introduction to one The History Book’s most compelling characters. The woman is Liz Luxton and she has cerebral palsy. As medical science improves, more of us will have a friend or loved one with cerebral palsy. Check it out on this brilliant site http://www.ucp.org/ Kat needs skills that Liz has learned despite her condition. She also needs Liz’s no nonsense character to get her through the fog, and when she listens to the sharp exchanges between Liz and her protective brother, Mike, she witnesses a new, unfamiliar side of humanity and love. There’s no way Liz is a victim. Enjoy her. She’s very special.
