A nice addition to any library.   (2009-06-18)
Excellent story of a 14 year old in a wheel chair with cerebral palsy and the family life around him. No one communicates with him, they thingk he can't understand - but he thinks and "talks" like a 14 year old. Excellent book for the upper grade levels.
