New parents who find out they're going to have a child with intellectual challenges are faced with many questions: Will she be able to function in the world? Will she have the same hopes and dreams as other children? Will her life be happy—or filled with sadness and failure? Along with the Brown family, you'll discover the answers to these questions as you read the story of Penelope Brown, a girl with Down syndrome. You'll see Penelope struggle to overcome others' ignorance and prejudice—and you'll watch her as she learns to follow her dreams.
