This is the true story of Shane Burcaw, a twenty-one-year-old with spinal muscular atrophy.
His story includes everything from awkward handshakes to having a girlfriend. Shane handles his situation with humor and a ‘you-only-live-once’ perspective on life.
This is one of the most unique and funniest books I have ever read. Shane Burcaw is just hilarious. This guy lives a difficult life, but you sort of forget that when you are laughing at how he explains the funny things that have happened to him. Even throughout his many horrible surgeries and physical stretches, he somehow stays positive.
