Marty's mom has Parkinson's; sometimes it makes her feel like she is wearing a mask. Sometimes it makes her feel like a wooden puppet. Sometimes it even makes her feel like a zombie. The only thing that can make her feel normal is an operation to implant two electrical stimulators deep in her brain. Marty is a fan of science-fiction movies and television. He and his mother both wonder what she'll be like with the new implants. What will it mean to be a real cyborg? Through their gentle presence and kind humor, Marty and his dad help his mom through the decision and the subsequent surgeries. This book is for families making similar life-changing decisions and living through the consequences together.
