Ghost Boy: The Miraculous Escape of a Misdiagnosed Boy Trapped Inside His Own Body
By Martin Pistorius / Thomas Nelson
In 1988, 12-year-old Martin Pistorius fell ill. By 1990, he was mute and wheelchair-bound; doctors had wrongly predicted that he had only two years to live; and his paren
ts were heartbroken. But that’s just the beginning of Martin’s heart-wrenching autobiography, in which he chronicles his return to life through the power of love and faith! 240 pages, softcover from Nelson.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through BookLook Bloggers [Harpercollins Publishers] book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

I cannot say enough good things about Ghost Boy. Late at night I struggled to put the book down. I felt propelled to turn each and every page. Martin held my complete attention.
Ghost Boy awakened my emotions, causing me to cry with sadness and with joy. What Martin went through, even though it is displayed in detail, I could in no way imagine what it must have been like. Not being able to say if something is hot or cold, to scream out in pain, to report to another experienced torment.
Ghost Boy leads the reader to believe the main character, Martin, has a relationship with God, but it does not go into detail in regards to that relationship as a focal point.
I highly recommend Ghost Boy to all who are of adult age. There are some instances within the writing which may not be appropriate for younger readers.
