Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This book is much more than a heartwarming story about a triumphant little girl and her amazing dog. It’s a book about never giving up hope.” Michael J. Fox
Elle & Coach is a must-read—not just for parents of children with chronic illnesses, but for any parent who’s ever wished to make life easier for a child who is struggling with something daunting. As the mom of a son who faced multiple surgeries during his childhood, I was deeply moved by Elle’s experiences—and inspired by the beacon of hope that her service dog provides. I have a feeling this book is going to change a lot of lives for the better.” Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author
“In addition to being a great read, the story of Elle & Coach will open eyes to the very real struggle of life with type 1 diabetes, and may well change the conversations we have about how to make lives better while we work toward better treatments and ultimately a cure.” Dean Kamen, inventor and founder of DEKA Research and Development Corporation
“[An] uplifting and educational memoir…Parents of kids with special needs will find Shaheen’s passionate advocacy informative and inspiring.” Booklist
