Fans of John Green, Sara Barnard and Adam Silvera will love this contemporary YA that is packed with humour and heart.
A high school student with spinal muscular atrophy is determined to reinvent himself.
When new-boy Harris meets cute-girl-in-his-class Nory, he is determined to prove he is more than just the kid in the powered wheelchair. Luckily, he has a secret weapon. His new nurse Miranda.
Beautiful and confident, Miranda sees Harris for who he really is - funny, smart and totally worthy of Nory's affections. It seems everything is working out for Harris for once. But Miranda has her own demons, and Harris starts to wonder if she has his best interests at heart.
