Book Review #42
Seeing Past Z: Nurturing The Imagination In A Fast-Forward World by Beth Kephart
Rating: three stars (out of four)
A memoir written in Beth Kephart's trademark poetic prose.
I thought this book was inspiring. I loved reading about Jeremy and his "projects", the way he was learning to cope with the world. I could see elements of myself in Jeremy, parts that I hid from the world because I wasn't sure whether they would accept me or not. This book gave me freedom to dream and to wonder if maybe what the world has always accepted as standard and normal isn't always to be desired.
