About this book:

The moving account of a woman’s struggle to come to terms with Friedreich's ataxia, a crippling neurological disorder that her brother also suffers from. At the age of twelve, Marguerite Black one day inexplicably loses her balance while riding her bike, and slowly what has previously been a dimly perceived threat becomes a reality. Her description of an unfettered early childhood in Grahamstown forms a sharp contrast to her increasing despair as she realises that she is losing the ability to move normally. At the same time, she is quietly determined to retain as much independence as she can. While fighting the disease remains a daily battle, in the end Marguerite's journey teaches her to “dance in her own way”.
