See Ya Simon by David Hill


See Ya Simon by David Hill

This book tells the story of Simon, a 14 year old boy who has muscular distrophy and spends his life in a wheelchair. Told by Simon's best friend Nathan, the book combines the tragedy of a fatal illness with a robust hilarity that has the reader laughing out loud.


A beautiful book both heart-warming and heart-tugging; a book that is an essential buy. School Librarian
