Peter Dankelson's story is a reminder that circumstances don't define your life; how you react to them does. You will be inspired by how Peter overcomes adversity with a positive attitude and a loving family. You will be motivated to choose courage over fear, embrace what makes you different, and reflect on what's important in your life. Readers will battle with Peter through his thirty-six surgeries, laugh with him as he searches for an ear store, and share in his excitement when he takes the stage with Buckcherry, Jared James Nichols, and others. Over half a million social media followers have found inspiration from Pete's Diary, a company inspired by Peter's life. This book is both Peter's story and the journey of how Pete's Diary evolved from his birth in 2000 to his career as a guitar player.
