Description

Nick Van Bloss was 7 years old when he had his first tic: a sudden compulsion to shake his head from left to right, twice in rapid succession. It wasn't until 15 years later that he was diagnosed with Tourette's syndrome and he could comprehend the condition that had plagued him for so long. Amidst his battles with unhelpful medical professionals, jeering bullies and his own very busy body, Nick managed to survive by discovering a gift and passion for the piano. Life, however, was still to throw a number of obstacles in his way before he could learn to accept his syndrome and wear his tics with a smile...Nick van Bloss' memoir gives a remarkable insight into a much-misunderstood condition, and allows us into the heart and mind of a wonderfully witty and talented man.

A brave and moving memoir of growing up with severe Tourette's Syndrome and the cruelty of society

:
My son was recently diagnosed with Tourette's Syndrome, and since that day I have been reading everything I can get my hands on. Nick van Bloss's memoir stopped me in my tracks. On one hand I look at the frightening unknown for my dear, sweet boy's future. On the other I see how Nick endured the torture of adolescence we all go through with the added burden of being the weird kid who barked, ticced, and did every socially unacceptable thing a kid could possibly do. Merciless bullying at the hands of his peers while teachers looked the other way was just part of his every day life. But one day, his father brought home a piano and while playing, for that magical period of time, Nick's tics would leave him in peace, and through music Nick would find his special place in the world. This is a stunningly candid portrayal of the suffering a Tourette's kid endures at the hands of society and the therapeutic healing music can bring to the heart and mind. A must read.
