I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions are my own. 

Author Mark N. Levine shares the powerful story of his granddaughter and the impossible odds she overcame in her young life in the book “Only Great Dads Get Promoted to Grandpa: A Grandfather’s Story”.


The Synopsis

Only Great Dads Get Promoted to Grandpa: A Grandfather’s Story is the heart-warming account of stretching the bounds of uncharted neonatal medicine, heartbreak, compassion, love, prayer, strength and the battle for life.

It is the story of Maggie Grace, the world’s 23rd smallest female micro-preemie to survive. She was born along with twin brother Noah. She weighed 11 ounces—less than a can of soda—and measured 9 inches. Noah weighed only 8 ounces. Both babies were given zero chance of survival. Although Noah passed away, Maggie fooled them all.

Within this book you’ll experience the resiliency of a fighter who refused to surrender to the impossible odds. You’ll experience the moments of tragedy, strength, strong family love and commitment.

You’ll laugh at life’s perspective through the eyes of sister Katie Elizabeth and her hilarious life observations

Most importantly you’ll see first-hand that sometimes miracles do happen.
