Item Description

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.
