"One has to be a superb writer to lift the story about the wheelchair that Peter Weisman was confined in from his tenth year and waltz around with it so brilliantly. But that is what Weisman, who vowed that 'Peter's life must grow steadily and bravely upward,' has done. There are time when the power of Weisman's prose squeezes the heart like a sponge, but perhaps the best moments leave you laughing."

-Phyllis Theroux, Washington Post
