Description

 

See below for English description.

Tyson fait tout trop vite. Il bâcle son travail en classe. Il engloutit son lunch sans reprendre son souffle. Il traverse la vie comme une flèche. La récréation est le seul moment où il peut courir partout aussi vite qu’il veut. Comme les autres enfants sont à la traîne, Tyson est loin devant, sans personne pour jouer avec lui. Alors, quand Suze arrive dans sa classe, il croit bien avoir trouvé l’âme soeur. Suze est dans un fauteuil roulant et elle aime aller vite, elle aussi! Cette charmante histoire d’inclusion célèbre l’amitié entre une fille en fauteuil roulant et un garçon qui adore la vitesse, et dépeint les liens incassables qui se tissent pendant l’enfance.

 

Tyson does everything too fast. He rushes through classwork. He speeds through lunch. He zips through life. Recess is the only time he can zoom around as quickly as he likes, but with the rest of the kids trailing behind, Tyson is miles ahead with nobody to play with. When Suze joins the class, Tyson believes he may have found a kindred spirit. Suze uses a wheelchair, but she loves to go fast, too! This heartwarming story of inclusivity models an interabled friendship and the pure bonds of childhood.

Original title: Fast Friends

Editorial Review

 

Praise for Betting Game:

“A very compelling story with interesting characters that kept this reader wanting to read more. O’Connor deals with topics that would be well worth discussing with almost any teen: the value of team-work; honesty; and ethics. I will certainly include Betting Game in our curriculum resource collection and would recommend it for other school libraries as well. Highly Recommended.” — CM: Canadian Review of Materials

Praise for Betting Game:

“O’Connor will keep the game’s fans close with plenty of in-the-know soccer patter, but she will also draw other readers with the story of Jack’s slow absorption into a gambling ring.” — Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Super Red Riding Hood:

“This is a simple but charming twist on a classic tale, with a strong lead character and a happily ever after ending well-suited for a modern audience.” — CM: Canadian Review of Materials

Praise for Child Soldier:

“Graphic in format but not detail ...The visual element gives this memoir particular immediacy for audiences who "don't understand what is happening right now, to kids just like them." — Kirkus Reviews
