I got this book out of a scholastic book order thinking is was written by Jerry Spinelli. It was cheap and we love books, so I thought what the heck. Anyway, it is for young readers but it is a really good story. It makes you really think how you treat people who aren't "normal". I've grown up with a handicapped brother so I feel like its a little easier for me to not stare at others who are different. I recommend this book for just a quick easy read.
