Product Description

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 parents 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.

Publisher's Description

When you lose your voice, who will speak for you? When it all seems hopeless, how do you get through each day? In the New York Times bestseller Ghost Boy, Martin Pistorius tells the harrowing story of his return to life through the healing power of love and faith.

In January 1988, a happy, healthy twelve-year-old Martin Pistorius came home from school with a sore throat. Soon, he was sleeping all day, refusing meals, and starting to lose his voice.

His doctors were mystified. Within eighteen months, his voice fell silent and his developing mind became trapped inside a body he couldn't control. Martin's parents were told that the unknown degenerative disease he was struggling with would mean that he had less than two years to live. He felt invisible--like a ghost of himself.

The stress and heartache shook his family to the core, bringing his parents to the brink of separation. Their boy was gone--or so they thought. Martin started to come back to life. He couldn't make a sign or a sound, but he'd become aware of the world around him again and was finally finding his way back to himself.

In these pages, you'll hear the highs and lows of Martin's journey from his own perspective, including:

  • A family's resilience in the face of hardship
  • The consequences of misdiagnosis
  • The gift of a wild imagination

Ghost Boy shares the beautiful, heart-wrenching story of a life reclaimed, a business created, a family transformed, and a new love that's blossomed. Martin's emergence from his own darkness invites us to celebrate our own lives and fight for a better life for those around us.
