Short Bus by Jonathan Mooney

Book Description

Labelled "dyslexic and profoundly learning disabled," Jonathan Mooney was a short-bus rider - a derogatory term used for kids in special education. To learn how others had moved beyond labels, he bought his own short bus and set out cross-country, looking for kids who had dreamed up magical, beautiful ways to overcome the obstacles that separated them from the so-called normal world."The Short Bus" is his irreverent and poignant record of that odyssey, meeting thirteen people in thirteen states who taught Mooney that there's no such thing as normal - and that to really live, every person must find their own special way of keeping on. "The Short Bus" is a unique gem, propelled by Mooney's heart, humour, and outrageous rebellions.
