“Claire blurted out, ‘I know! I know! I can’t do that either!’ and she hop-skipped across the gravel driveway, her feet making angry crunching sounds.”

Claire wants to ride a bicycle, roller blade down the sidewalk, and zoom on a scooter. But she is prevented from doing many ordinary things by a rare form of epilepsy that feels to her like “spiders dancing on my arm and they’re wearing sneakers”. When her principal announces try-outs for a cross country meet, Claire knows she can be involved at last. This is a true story of one girl’s determination to be an athlete.

All of the author’s royalties on the sale of this book are being donated to The Epilepsy Association of Nova Scotia.
