“Cancer survivor Jeffrey is trying to get through the eighth grade like any other “normal” kid. The effects of his leukemia treatment have left him with a pronounced limp and difficulty processing information, particularly math. Jeff’s best friend, wheelchair-bound Tad, offers to help him pass the state test. In return, Jeff will get Tad in shape so he can walk across the stage at graduation.”
This is a followup book to Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie, which focused on older brother Steven and Jeffrey’s initial bout with cancer.
