Milo doesn’t need friends. He’s got his journal, which he fills with sketches
of plants and animals. When Milo’s mom makes him go to The Club, he
keeps his distance from the others. That is, until the annual go-kart rally.
Milo has used crutches to walk his whole life, but could he be the fastest
for once? Milo wants to find out.
“An aspiring biologist who’s bullied because of his disability finds friends when he enters a go-kart competition… the optimistic open ending implies that Milo’s growth, like the resilient oak’s, is an ongoing process that’s ‘hard, but not impossible.’ A realistic, hopeful take on meeting challenges and making friends.” —Kirkus
