Abstract:

A high school athlete, frustrated at being handicapped after an accident, runs away from home and is helped back to mental and physical health by a black benefactor and the people in a special school where he enrolls. A freak accident in his sixteenth year leaves star athlete Willie Weaver without his once-marvelous physical talents. Betrayed by his father, his girl, and his body, he goes on the run, ending up penniless and terrified on the treacherous streets of Oakland, California. The Crazy Horse Electric Game is the rugged, sometimes humorous, story of Willie's two-year fight back in a world of street toughs and pimps, and in a magical school aptly dubbedd One More Last Chance High -- where he finds that human dignity comes in a wide assortment of shapes and colors.
