But I hope that youll take away much more--about adapting to the world when it wont adapt to you.--from Dwarf A memoir of grit and transformation for anyone who has been told something was impossible and then went on to do it anyway.Tiffanie DiDonato was born with dwarfism. Her limbs were so short that she was not able to reach her own ears. She was also born with a serious case of optimism. She decided to undergo a series of painful bone-lengthening surgeries that gave her an unprecedented 14 inches of height--and the independence she never thought shed have.After her surgeries, Tiffanie was able to learn to drive, to live in the dorms during college, and to lead a normal life. She even made time to volunteer, writing to troops stationed abroad, and one of those Marine pen pals ultimately became her husband.Dwarf is a moving and, at times, funny testament to the power of sheer determination, and has been compared to Andrew solomons Far From the Tree.
