Review of “What About the Boy” by Stephen Gallup and Narrated by Kevin Arthur Harper

“A moving memoir of love and persistence!”

Overall 4 Stars
Performance 5 Stars
Story 4 Stars

This is a wonderful book that follows a mother and father who have a developmentally disabled son. They are driven by frustration with doctors who can tell them nothing about why their child is the way he is not offer any solutions as to how to help him.

When doctors prove to be of no help the boy’s parents seek alternatives to try and help him live a more normal life. When doctors offer no hope the Institutes for Human Potential offers them a plan to help young Joseph progress. This is that story.

Kevin Arthur Harper does a fine job of narrating this book. The ease with which he tells the tale made me think he was relating his own story and not that of Stephen Gallup. BRAVO!!!

This book should be required listening for anyone who has a disabled friend or loved one in their life. It offers no solutions, but is a story about hope!

I received this book from the author in exchange for a fair review!
