Thunderstorms are erupting inside Rosalies brain. When she is six years old, Rosalie has her first seizure and learns she has epilepsy. As she grows older, she tries to navigate a world made more difficult by her disability. Though sometimes its scary, she never gives up. With the help of her family and her seizure response dog, Rolex, Rosalie learns that she can help others and achieve her dreams. The topic of disability is underrepresented in childrens literature, epilepsy even more so. With colorful, evocative illustrations, this book is perfect for those who want to teach children about epilepsy, disability, service dogs, or empathy. At times happy, at times sad, but always triumphant, Rosalies true story is a tribute to how the power of love can help us all overcome the obstacles of life.
