Description - Spell Albuquerque by Tennessee Reed

In kindergarten, teachers told Tennessee Reed that she had a learning disability so severe that she would never read or write, but she proved them wrong by writing her first book at the age of 11. In this inspiring autobiography, spanning from school to university, Reed gives an inspiring account of her disabilities and how they affect her life. More importantly, she exposes 'society's disability' - that there is only one correct way of being. Through great reserves of courage, she has fought an education system that would otherwise have written off her capabilities.
