Book Summary: Stubborn Debra Sue is an inspirational story that is based on true events about a little girl who never gave up. It tells about a little girl who becomes handicapped after being afflicted with polio and how she overcomes the many obstacles that she is faced with in her young life. It tells of her determination to run and play with other children her age despite her handicap, how students knocked her down while trying to pass her because she was too slow, and how she would fall down, get up, and fall down again. But stubborn Debra Sue refused to stay down. Debra Sue refused to be bullied, and she refused to let her older brother from being bullied. Even though she was handicap, she was her brother’s protector. It tells the agony that Debra Sue endured with the many operations that she incurred because of her polio. Some of the surgeries were successful while others failed. She always kept a positive attitude. It tells how she masked her pain and suffering so that people would not feel sorry for her. It tells about her love for all animals and how she took in all strays that came her way despite her mother’s disapproval. It tells about her friendships and the pain and agony she felt when her best friend betrayed her. When Debra Sue wanted to do something, she would refuse to let her handicap stop her from doing it. She would study the situation, and then she would figure out a way to do it. Stubborn Debra Sue gave true meaning to the phrase “Where there is a will, there is a way.”
