When fifteen-year-old Lefty Carmichael finds out he has epilepsy, his world is pretty much turned upside down. The idea of having a seizure at a totally unexpected moment is pretty scary at first, but Lefty comes to believe that he can handle it. What heís not sure he can handle is the reaction of his family and friends to the news of his disability. His mom passes out the first time she witnesses a seizure. His best friend Rueben spreads rumors about him. His almost-girlfriend is too scared to be alone with him anymore. And it gets worse!
