“It is the kind of message that kids of all ages need to hear, as readers at any age love a personal connection to their lives. This type of book could be one that might be used in therapy sessions, school settings by nurses, social workers, and teachers. In particular, it could be used to build materials for a theme-based unit, as a Touchstone Book”. Betsy Reutemann, Teacher.
“The Accident is a beautiful example of how to find healing through telling our stories, even the painful ones. For readers who feel alone with their secrets, this is a powerful reminder that you don’t have to carry your pain in silence.” Morgan Lange, Translator, Azuli Language Solutions
“The Accident is an important story about how one day or one moment can change our perspective of life. Her story highlights a parent’s love for their children and how vital it is to overcome our fears. Gayle details her life changing experience in her book and teaches children and other readers about the importance of “being comfortable in their own skin”. She is an inspiration with her message that it is never too late for self-improvement.” Lea Márquez Peterson, Past President, Tucson Hispanic Chamber and Chairwoman of the Arizona Corporation Commission)
