The Birth of Super Crip

Authored by Rob J. Quinn

Red O'Ryan spends most of his days like many high school juniors-dealing with the demands of class, thinking about girls, and trying to measure up to his older brother. Cerebral palsy is just part of his life, and he doesn't think the experimental treatments he's receiving for the disability are doing anything for him. When a confrontation with a football player ends with the bully on the ground, Red knows he never touched him. But he can't help wondering how his tormentor fell.

Soon, Red realizes that he may have to do more than just get used to the nickname Super Crip.
