When her eight-year-old son begins to exhibit increasingly bizarre behaviors, a happily married mother of two must meet the overwhelming demands of motherhood and wrestle with her fear of conflict if she and her son are to survive.
"More than a memoir about living with a tumor and handling medical challenges, it's a saga of personal transformation and resilience that will resonate with any parent charged with acting in their child's best interests, against all odds."
"I highly recommend this five-star book to all readers, and hope you will spread word of the book to your friends and family. I believe Growth is an exceptional story that you will long remember."
“What keeps this memoir a page-turner is DeBonis's natural and relatable storytelling. Every page is deeply personal, honest, and down to earth."
"DeBonis's language is clear, even as she delves into the complex details of Matthew's medical case. It is also raw and truthful. DeBonis does not shy away from telling painful facts about her story. She shares both the good and bad, revealing the complicated sides of motherhood and her own struggles.”
