For sixteen-year-old Ben Bancroft—a kid with cerebral palsy, no parents, and an overprotective grandmother—the closest thing to happiness is hunkering alone in the back of the Rialto Theatre and watching Bride of Frankenstein for the umpteenth time. The last person he wants to run into is drugged-up Colleen Minou, resplendent in ripped tights, neon miniskirt, and an impressive array of tattoos. But when Colleen climbs into the seat beside him and rests a woozy head on his shoulder, Ben has that unmistakable feeling that his life is about to change. With unsparing humor and a keen flair for dialogue, Ron Koertge captures the rare repartee between two lonely teenagers on opposite sides of the social divide. His smart, self-deprecating protagonist learns that kindred spirits may be found for the looking—and that the resolve to follow your passion can be strengthened by something as simple as a human touch.

    " The characters are interesting and real. The story doesn't have an easy happy ending, which is how life is. I don't get the picture on the cover, though. "

    " This is three and a half stars. I really related to the main character, a sarcastic boy with CP. (huh.) The narrative voices were authentic and funny, the book wasn't didactic at all. But there was some racism, and the main character seemed younger than he was supposed to be. Also, the main character says, "No one who is disabled wants to be with someone who is disabled" and occasionally lets his non-disabled (but addicted, so that's arguable under the ADA) love interest treat him like crap. But I still liked it. It wasn't sappy or condescending and seemed pretty realistic. "
