characters ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Deanna Fei Deanna Fei ↠ 3 characters review Girl in Glass 103 Eadsheets wielded by cost cutting executives to the insidious notions of risk surrounding modern pregnancy; from the wondrous history of medical innovation in the care of premature infants to contemporary analyses of what their lives are worth; and finally to the depths of her own struggle to make sense of her daughter's arrival in the world Above all Girl in Glass is a luminous testament to how love takes hold when a birth defies our fundamental beliefs about how life is supposed to begin. This is an astounding and powerful book for any parent I passed it by on the library shelves several times because I thought it would be too sad andor trite Instead it s a moving but very grounded book about a family s experience in an extremely precarious uncertain medical circumstance followed by their public shaming in an example of crass callow corporate greed I salute the author for sharing her story and writing it so well without any sentimental artiface and hewing close to the dark moments that must be the truth in a situation like this one
