**How Lucky by Will Leitch**
This great book follows Daniel, who has spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), a disease which requires him to use a wheelchair as well as a voice generator to communicate with others. When a local college student goes missing, Daniel believes that he saw this student actually being kidnapped while he was sitting on his front porch early one morning. This story is about how he and a couple of his very dear friends try to help find this student. Daniel tells the reader about his life and the people in his life who love and care about him and we are invited in to witness a very independent, capable, caring person who shows true courage in the face of a very scary situation. This book is funny, compassionate on many levels, suspenseful and informative (you will learn a lot about SMA)!
