Overview

"At once beautiful and heartbreaking, Aaron Philip found a way to make me laugh even as I choked up, found a way to bring on my empathy without ever allowing me to feel sorry for him. An eye-opening debut." --Jacqueline Woodson, National Book Award winner and Newbery Honor author of Brown Girl Dreaming

In this heartbreaking and ultimately uplifting memoir, Aaron Philip, a fourteen-year-old boy with cerebral palsy, shows how he isn't defined so much by his disability as he is by his abilities.

Written with award-winning author Tonya Bolden, This Kid Can Fly chronicles Aaron's extraordinary journey from happy baby in Antigua to confident teen artist in New York City. His honest, often funny stories of triumph--despite physical difficulties, poverty, and other challenges--are as inspiring as they are eye-opening.

Includes photos and original illustrations from Aaron's personal collection.
