THE SPIRIT CATCHES YOU AND YOU FALL DOWN by Anne Fadiman

It's an intimate portrait of a family at the intersection of two cultures--Hmong and that of Western medicine. This book will break your heart in the best way as it tells the story of Lia Lee, a Hmong child with severe epilepsy. It will satisfy nonfiction and fiction lovers alike--well written and smart.
