The Abler's Review On The Memoir Of Such a Pretty Girl By Nadina LaSpina A story about struggle, empowerment, and disability pride

The Book Review
“Such a pretty girl: A story of struggle, empowerment, and disability pride” by Nadina La Spina Publishing Company: New Village Press Publicist: Lorna Gargano

This is the real-life story of a little’s girl journey that starts with one goal in mind: being “cured” of her polio, to later finding acceptance with herself as a woman who has a disability and eventually finding her passion for disability rights and activism. “Such a pretty girl,” is the story of a young Sicilian girl-turned activist by the name of Nadina La Spina who dealt with always hearing pity and being told by many to send her suffering to the Lord.
