PRAISE FOR POSTER CHILD:


"With a voice as refreshing as spiked lemon ice, authentic, feisty and tender, Poster Child connects us to an unflinching American family and to a guileless young woman who tells her emerging story with luminous self-command. At every quarter turn we follow the narrator's transformations from her first tentative steps and into glittering prisms of personal challenge and explosive discovery. A triumph of warmth, wit, and a fiercely lyric psyche."


Maria Flook, author of
My Sister Life and Invisible Eden


“Emily Rapp's autobiographical Poster Child contains actual insight and analysis. Focusing on the challenges she faced as a girl, and later as a young woman, with an artificial leg, the memoir is revelatory and emotional, truthful and empathetic... Honest and perceptive."


— Christina Eng, San Francisco Chronicle

“You can't put down this excellent memoir ...Poster Child beautifully illustrates every human being's sometimes overt, sometimes covert struggle against the intractability of our own physical condition."


— Carolyn See, Washington Post

“This should not be viewed only as a disability memoir. It is also a spiritual memoir of the movement from childhood pieties to adult faith and a confession that will resonate with anyone who spent their youth overcompensating, for whatever reason. Rapp has excelled again: This book is a blessing."

— Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
