Reviews

"A powerful yet tender memoir from one of the most important figures in disability rights history. Judy's story made me laugh, cringe, and perhaps most importantly, it lit a fire in me to fight harder for disability rights."
--Shane Burcaw, author of Laughing at My Nightmare

"Many people will say Rolling Warrior is an important read and it is, but it is also fun, exciting, and honest. This isn't just a story that disabled children will love; it's a story about what is possible when we fight for ourselves and each other. It is a story about how tenacity, strength, the power of community, and the willingness to fight for what matters can start a revolution."
--Keah Brown, author of The Pretty One "Judy Heumann's journey is told with heart, tenacity, and even humor. Any young person will find inspiration in her story to overcome whatever barrier comes their way and to realize their dreams just as she has. I only wished I had the chance to read her story when I was reaching for my dreams!"
--Marlee Matlin, Academy Award-winning actress and activist "A marvelous memoir by a disability hero who has paved the way for so many of us. This book will inspire a new generation of disability rights activists and guide future leaders as we work toward a barrier-free world."
--Haben Girma, author of the bestseller Haben: The Deafblind Woman Who Conquered Harvard Law "For the first time, I see myself in someone else. Judy's lifelong fight and fierce advocacy around disability justice have undeniably paved the way for me to achieve what I have today. . . . A must-read for all young people."
--Ali Stroker, Tony Award-winning actress
