"Elle & Coach is a must-read--not just for parents of children with chronic illnesses, but for any parent who's ever wished to make life easier for a child who is struggling with something daunting. As the mom of a son who faced multiple surgeries during his childhood, I was deeply moved by Elle's experiences--and inspired by the beacon of hope that her service dog provides. I have a feeling this book is going to change a lot of lives for the better."--Jodi Picoult

Parents of kids with special needs will find Shaheen's passionate advocacy informative and inspiring."--Booklist
