Ghost Boy: by Martin Pistorius.
The Miraculous Escape of a Misdiagnosed Boy Trapped Inside His Own Body

A true story about a healthy normal child who suddenly becomes ill and ends up in a wheelchair, unable to speak.  However,  people did not realize that his brain still worked just fine.   Thanks to the insight and compassion of one of his caregivers, Martin slowly learns to communicate.  An inspiration,  he perseveres despite enormous challenges.  The most amazing part to me was his unwavering positive attitude that remains throughout his story.  Really puts things in perspective.
