Stoner and Spaz by Ron Koertge
Ben is a 16 year old boy who has Cerebral Palsy. When he meets a girl who is a known drug user his life changes dramatically. He has always been a loner, who would rather watch movies than experience real life. Colleen, would rather party than have to live up to her own life. With the help of Colleen, Ben learns that he needs to put himself out into the mix to make friends. With the help of Ben, Colleen is forced to decide if she can 'go straight'. A good book, but might be a bit risky for some kids- a mature reader is needed.
