This book was written by Cynthia Phillipson about my daughter Sarah Kostecki when the girls were 12 years old. Cynthia wrote this book from what she thought was Sarah's perspective, since Sarah has Cerebral Palsy and is non-verbal.

Cynthia passed away suddenly at age 15 when she collapsed at basketball practice. The book has been published in her honor by her parents and explains to children that even though a person my be "different" or unable to walk or talk, they just want to be treated like anyone else.

It is available on or

A very special book written by and about two very special girls. I think children would benefit from reading In Another Person's Shoes. I would love to share this message with as many people as possible.
