Read in January, 1990

This was written by my high school Advanced Placement English teacher. (Notice the name!!) She is a prolific author of many more books and writes mainly for young audiences that are mature enough to graple with more adult themes. This book is about a retarded boy, written in his voice, and how he goes through school, family, friends, and even a girlfriend! It is heartwarming and a bit of a tear-jerker. It makes you think about how this population gets through a single day--and how mentally retarded people are really not that different from the rest of us.
