The Little Big Things
by Henry Fraser
Published by Seven Dials, £8.99 paperback, Waterstones.
Berkhamsted’s Henry Fraser was just 17 when a tragic accident on holiday severely crushed his spinal cord, leaving him paralysed from the shoulders down. Since then he has conquered unimaginable difficulty to embrace life and a new way of living, and found the opportunity to inspire others.
This book combines his wisdom and insight into finding the gifts in life’s challenges, and will resonate with anyone facing an obstacle, no matter how big or small. It includes Henry’s thoughts on how to look at the right things and avoid the wrong, finding progress in whatever you do, and acknowledging and accepting the darkness when it comes. Right at the heart of Henry’s inspiring philosophy is his belief that every day is a good day.
It’s a tough read, but well worth it. Henry is an inspiring young man. Plus, it’s been highly praised by JK Rowling – what other recommendation could you possibly need?
