Description


In this non-fictional biography, Helga Thieroff relates the life of her gifted son Kai from his birth up until his suicide at the age of 21. She not only gives a vivid account of the various stages of Kai’s life from the perspective of a mother who experiences a rollercoaster ride of emotions in accompanying her child; she also describes the “different” nature of gifted children and adolescents from a professional viewpoint and outlines the problems and misunderstandings these young people encounter at school and in society at large.
