This is the story of my life with cerebral palsy, caused by a mosquito-borne encephalitis, which I got when I was thirteen. Much of the book takes place in Hong Kong and California. It is about my loves and adventures and the struggle with my severe disability. It's an upbeat book about an unusual life.
