Stefany Shaheen takes readers on an emotional journey as she tries everything to manage her daughter Elle's deadly and unpredictable disease, all while juggling a family of four children. Overcoming the skepticism that a dog can provide answers that medical science is still seeking, the family finds a resounding sense of peace and reassurance through Coach's near miraculous abilities as a medic-alert dog, specially trained to detect dangerous changes in blood sugar levels. Elle & Coach is a story of determination and finding hope in the most unlikely of places.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book is much more than a heartwarming story about a triumphant little girl and her amazing dog. It's a book about never giving up hope."--Michael J. Fox, actor, producer, and activist
"ELLE & COACH is a must-read--not just for parents of children with chronic illnesses, but for any parent who's ever wished to make life easier for a child who is struggling with something daunting. As the mom of a son who faced multiple surgeries during his childhood, I was deeply moved by Elle's experiences--and inspired by the beacon of hope that her service dog provides. I have a feeling this book is going to change a lot of lives for the better."--Jodi Picoult, New York Times-bestselling author of My Sister's Keeper and Leaving Time
"In addition to being a great read, the story of ELLE & COACH will open eyes to the very real struggle of life with type 1 diabetes, and may well change the conversations we have about how to make lives better while we work toward better treatments and ultimately a cure."--Dean Kamen, Inventor and Founder of DEKA Research & Development Corporation
The book will surely resonate with parents or caretakers of children living with any chronic health condition.--New Hampshire Magazine
