Beautiful but troubled
Colleen Minou is the only girl who ever looked at Ben Bancroft as more than a
spaz—more than just that kid with cerebral palsy. Yet the more time Ben spends
with her, the more glaring their differences appear. Is what Ben feels for
Colleen actual affection, or more like gratitude? Then there’s Amy (aka A. J.),
who is everything Colleen isn’t, and everything Ben’s grandma wants for him:
clean-cut and upper-class, academically driven, just as obsessed with
filmmaking as Ben is. But what does A. J. see when she looks at Ben? C. P.? Or the
person behind the twisted body?
In Ron Koertge’s sharp,
darkly humorous follow-up to the award-winning Stoner & Spaz, Ben tries to come to terms with his confused
feelings toward A. J. and his inimitable connection to Colleen, who is
sometimes out of it, sometimes into him, and always exhilarating. Download and start listening now!
