2. Ghost Boy by: Martin Pistorius
I love biographies and autobiographies, and this is unlike any other true story I’ve read. Martin Pistorius slipped into a coma as a child and was misdiagnosed as being virtually brain dead, but he was aware and alert through it all. A miraculous set of circumstances helped him emerge from his catatonic state years later and he wrote his journey in his own words. I laughed and I cried multiple times in just the first few pages. It’s one of the most powerful and profound stories of faith and perseverance I’ve ever read.
