On a balmy Tuesday during the summer before ninth grade, a car accident on a rain-slicked highway flipped Jannas safe and happy world upside down, and her adolescence dissolved into a summer of restraining belts, feeding tubes, therapy schedules,MoreOn a balmy Tuesday during the summer before ninth grade, a car accident on a rain-slicked highway flipped Jannas safe and happy world upside down, and her adolescence dissolved into a summer of restraining belts, feeding tubes, therapy schedules, and chicken salad sandwiches from the hospital cafeteria.

Since that day, Jannas life has been a navigation through the inescapable struggles of her fathers brain injury, a study of her mothers resilience and unconditional love, an a challenge to find her own identity and acceptance as an adult. Brain injury is insidious. Its tricky and tiresome. For those asked to love and support a TBI survivor, the struggles are deeply personal and often unresolved, and the victims recovery is repeatedly thwarted by insurmountable obstacles, along with the battles fought with insurance companies for proper patient care and effective treatment.

Janna Leydes coming-of-age memoir encompasses the acute and lasting effects of brain injury on both survivors and their loved ones. He Never Liked Cake is for children who feel the weight of life crashing down, for families who fight for the new normal, for survivors who fail to see how life has changed-and, for everyone, this is a story about how to embrace life when it doesnt work out the way we had it planned.
