Synopsis:
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 Lubar's protagonist gets a sobering lesson from his friends. In Gail Giles's tale, Brad can't 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.
