Turtle Boy

Wolkenstein, M. Evan

The heartwarming and heartbreaking story of a boy who’s afraid to live, learning to embrace the life he has from a boy who soon may die.

12-year-old Will likes two things: turtles and the local nature preserve. Everything else is a nightmare, because Will has a facial difference that has earned him an unfortunate nickname. But when Will meets RJ, who is confined to a hospital room, each boy discovers they have strength to lend the other and that life is too short to live in a shell.
