The main character in this book is a little boy who never really fits in but he doesn't seem to notice. He has his own way of viewing the world and doing things. His perspective is often so simple it is refreshing.

I absolutely LOVE this book. It captures the life of a special kid and his very special story. Jerry Spinelli is officially one of my new favorite authors. This book should be read by anyone who liked Stargirl, another good read.

Funny, sad, and enjoyable all at the same time. My son read this for summer reading and loved it!

Book is in good condition (no pages missing and/or loose)

I thought this book was great actually because it showed that people who have disabilites or who seem strange to other people are just like us except they have special things about them. This was a real eye-opener for me.

This book is for all of the kids who get picked on and don't feel that they fit in. This book is for all of the children who love hearing how a child gets bullied and how that child conquers it. I would advise children as well as adults to read this.

Just like other kids, Zinkoff also raises his hand with all the wrong answers, trips over his own feet, and falls down with laughter over a word like "Jabip."
Other kids have their own word to describe him, but Zinkoff is too busy to hear it. He doesn't know he's not like everyone else. And one winter night, Zinkoff's differences show that any name can someday become "hero."
