With acerbic wit and a hilarious voice, Shane Burcaw describes the challenges he faces as a twenty-one-year-old with spinal muscular atrophy. From awkward handshakes to having a girlfriend and everything in between, Shane handles his situation with humour and a "you-only-live-once" perspective on life. While he does talk about everyday issues that are relatable to teens, he also offers an eye opening perspective on what it is like to have a life-threatening disease.

An irreverently funny debut YA memoir that takes an honest and raw look at an average guy with a not-so-average disability.
