On being Sarah

Book Cover
Average Rating
A. Whitman,
Pub. Date:
Twelve-year-old Sarah Bennett has the same wishes that many girls have: she hopes she will like her new school and will find friends there. She wants to see more of the world, and dreams about what she might do, about who she will become.But Sarah is also different from most girls; she was born with cerebral palsy. She must move about in a wheelchair, and she cannot speak but uses a symbol board. Sarah has a lot to say, though--when she makes a school friend, Maggie, who learns to read Sarah's symbols; when she takes a disastrous trip to the zoo with her family; and when she meets Johnnie, a boy who can't walk, but who gives her glimpses of new worlds. Sarah's life is filled with adventure--enough for any girl.
