…a very special love story
How David Met Sarah is completely different type of novel because it was written for Annie Kelleher’s youngest brother, David. David has Downs’ Syndrome and like the main character in the story, lives at home with my parents. He works in a mail room and has a lot of friends. He’s even been in love.
Annie Kelleher wrote How David Met Sarah at her mother’s suggestion when she explained that as much as David is interested in reading, it’s hard to find stories he likes. He reads at approximately a third grade level but as an adult, David doesn’t relate to third grade level stories. How David Met Sarah is a story for grownups that someone with my brother’s reading skills can read and enjoy.
The simple style that Anne Kelleher writes in is what makes this book so unique. The story is smooth and engaging for readers of any level, but for readers like David, it opens a new world where the current literature for developmentally disabled readers has never even thought of going.
If you know and love someone like David, check it out. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to live so differently-abled, you should check it out also.
