Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From an acclaimed anthologist, a stellar collection of stories about teens with disabilities — and the tenacity, spirit, and humor that drive them.

Chris Crutcher takes us on a wild ride through the mind of a teen with ADD, while David Lubars protagonist gets a sobering lesson from his friends. In Gail Giless tale, Brad cant help barking at his classmates but finds understanding when he gives a comical (and informative) presentation to his entire school. And Robert Lipsyte introduces us to an elite task force whose number-one enemy is cancer. Whether their disabilities are physical or psychological, the subjects of these powerful short stories — written by ten outstanding young adult authors — meet every day with wit, intelligence, and courage.

Synopsis:

Ten authors of young adult fiction contribute to this stellar collection of stories about teens with physical or psychological disabilities, and the tenacity, spirit, and humor that drive them.
