Press Release:

RAHWAY, N.J., Sept. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- "Only You, Christine, Only You," by
Christine Komoroski-McCohnell, is a memoir that reflects on living and
growing to adulthood with Cerebral Palsy. Navigating the staircase of
oppression associated with a disability is the main theme of the book. The
author's self-exploration helps the reader pursue their own self-exploration.

The author touches on her relationships with her parents, two brothers, one
sister, her husband Mac and all of her friends. With many emotions that
nurture the reader's soul, you can fully grasp how far Christine has come in
overcoming her oppression.

"'Who is really disabled out there?' And then I think to myself, 'Do I have
the authority to judge anyone?'"

Filled with humor and suspense, readers will be rooting for and relating to
Christine on her journey through life. She is ready for whatever life throws
her way and knows that no matter what, she will be content and successful.

attend Ramapo College of New Jersey where she attained a BA in Psychology.

received post-master credits at Temple University.

Now happily married with a stepson and stepgranddaughter, Christine loves to
travel places where she can experience different cultures and events.

Studies minor, and is on the board of the Society of Disability Studies.
