Through the literary technique of author surrogate, the reader is submerged into a first-hand account of what it's like to break the abelist mold as a student with cebral palsy facing the public school system.

An awesome true story about a young man overcoming hurdles while growing up with cerebral palsy. It is also about how the help of a parent and advocate ensuring that his life's work is treated fairly and just. A great read for parents with children with disabilities and also for someone that might need inspiration when overcoming life altering obstacles!
Have read about half of this book and am quite enjoying it so far. Feel this would make a great movie some day. Written very well. Keeps you coming back. Don't want to put it down. Great writing Mr Nankivell.
