Short Bus, The: A Journey Beyond Normal
by Jonathan Mooney
A young man once called unteachable journeys across America to investigate the lives of those, like himself, who are forced to create new ways of living in order to survive. Labeled 'dyslexic and profoundly learning disabled with attention and behavior problems', Jonathan Mooney was a short bus rider---a derogatory term used for kids in special education and a distinction that told the world he wasn't 'normal'. Jonathan gives his humorous, irreverent, and poignant record of this odyssey & describes his four-month, 35,000-mile journey across borders that most people never see. Mooney learns that there's no such thing as normal and that to really live, every person must find their own special ways of keeping on.
