Amanda’s Fall

Reviewed by Lydia Dehning (age 6) for Reader Views Kids (3/20)
Amanda’s Fall: A Story for Children About Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) by Kelly Bouldin Darmofal is the story of a little girl named Amanda who is at school in first grade. Amanda likes to play with her friends outside at recess, they like to pretend like they are horses. One day at recess, Amanda rolls down a hill and hits her head on a rock.

I learned a lot about my head from this book. I like the story and how I learned something from it. This will be a good book for anyone to read, especially little kids.

Amanda can’t see the teacher well, she can’t talk to her well, and she starts to shake. Amanda gets taken to the hospital and her parents come, too. At the hospital, Amanda learns that she had a concussion, which is when your head gets hits really hard and your brain moves around. Amanda will have to be careful as she grows up because her concussion might cause problems for her at school. She will also need to be really careful with her head by wearing a helmet while riding her bike and when playing sports like baseball or t-ball. I hope I never get a concussion, and I’ll protect my head by wearing a helmet while I ride my bike and be careful when I play. I learned a lot about my head from this book. I like the story and how I learned something from it. This will be a good book for anyone to read, especially little kids.

A Note from Mom: Lydia didn’t know anything about concussions or hurting your head. From “Amanda’s Fall,” I think she is able to picture what’s going on easier now than if I were to explain it to her. Coming from an author who has experienced a severe head injury, she presented the information appropriately for her target audience. I also like the extra resources in the back of the book, such as symptoms of a concussion and facts about brain injuries. A well-done book

More True Stories from EMS and the ER

More Confessions shares the raw and honest feelings of emergency service professionals through true 'story behind the story' revelations. Disclosing experiences from both sides of the gurney, Sherry and other EMS, ER, paramilitary, and firefighter responders walk you along their fragile line of sanity. Using humor as a life raft during perfect storms, workers reflect upon how they endure and survive personal and professional tragedy while trying not to care too much, and what happens when they fail
in that attempt. A graduate student in psychology, Sherry is a paramedic, trauma nurse, and crisis interventionist who led a national paramilitary crisis response team and continues conducting crisis management training throughout the U.S.


Emergency Service Professionals Praise More Confessions

"Once again, Sherry brings to life the overlooked or, too often, over-hyped world of the
emergency services for all to experience. She does so with a vitality and spirit that
makes her prose almost poetic. If you want to glimpse the amazing world of EMS
from 'behind the curtain,' More Confessions is for you. Highest recommendations."

--Rev. Don Brown, B.A., M.Div., Flight Paramedic (retired), Chaplain, Lt. Col., CAP

(retired); Pastor, First United Methodist Church, Grand Saline, TX



"More Confessions will take you to the edge of first responder insanity with honesty
and integrity. Sherry has once again opened our world to the reader by cleverly describing
the unbelievable experiences that we have every day. This book is the real
deal!"

--Peter Volkmann, MSW, EMT, Chief-Stockport NY Police Department.



"Through the venue of real and personable human experience stories, Sherry's More
Confessions
is a powerfully written sequel that provides key insights into the need for
those who work in emergency and disaster response, as well as their families, to actively
and purposely recognize and consistently address their physical, mental, and
spiritual well-being. All who read this book will be touched deeply in some way."

--Harvey J. Burnett, Jr., PhD, LP,
