For Adults, Parents and Caregivers
Young daredevil Lauretta puts her brand-new wheelchair to the ultimate test--and saves her brother!

When she gets a speeding ticket during a one-day tryout, her parents insist that the wheelchair be returned to the store...until Lauretta's older brother has an accident and only one person can whisk him to the hospital on time--Lauretta, in her amazing wheelchair! Written about a girl with spina bifida.
It was created to help children with spina bifida understand their condition, discover new ways to enrich their lives and help their parents and caregivers answer many of the tough questions that arise.
