An action-packed middle-grade story that explores friendship, bullying, and living with a disability
Ian and Warren, better known as Sticks and Ranga, are best friends. They live on the same street, go to the same school and love the same things, like skateboarding and PlayStation. When new kid James arrives in class in his wheelchair, Sticks isn’t sure they can be friends. But Sticks quickly discovers they have a lot in common. Cerebral palsy stops James from doing some things but it hasn't dulled his sense of humor—and he’s pretty brainy, too. Soon James becomes an inseparable part of the Sticks, Ranga, and James show.
