Lexi’s Book

We can finally let the cat out of the bag! Lexi and Susan have sold a fictionalized middle grade memoir about Lexi. Penny Candy books will publish “The Year of the Buttered Cat” in the Spring of 2021. The dual timeline story follows Lexi through the final 24 hours before her second brain surgery, and flashes back to the Year of the Buttered Cat–the year when she uncovered what happened to her to leave her with an unmanageable body and without a voice. While some parts of the story are made up, most of it is true.
Lexi and Susan worked together for more than 5 years to get the story right. We hope “The Year of The Buttered Cat” will shed light on her very preventable condition, and at the same time celebrate the powerful diversity of persons with disabilities.
