    A cleverly written, humor filled, poignant and heartfelt narrative of growning up with legs that are malformed and a face that challenges the norms I urge you to take the time to read this delightfully crafted book Robert Hoge has experienced the raw emotions that come with facing harsh realities of having physical handicaps, the gross injustice of human bullies and painful experiences of modern medicine through all this he has emerged an enlightened, compassionate and clearly optimistic man More importantly, he has the talent to put his story into an immensely enjoyable read without losing one lesson His tale weaves in lessons of acceptance, of resilience, of friendship, of fear, of empathy, of laughter, of perserverance and of love I plan to gift this book to as many friends, teachers and children as possible High recommend
