“Idiot. Freak. Retard.” Imagine being called these words every day of your life. Imagine having no friends because people think that you’re stupid. Imagine having people bully you because you are “different.” Imagine people staring, pointing, whispering behind your back; thinking you can’t understand them. Well, guess what? I do understand. I have had to deal with all of this since I was little, and it’s about time other people knew. My name is Lucy, and I’m 16 years old. I have cerebral palsy, and this is my story. Told from the perspective of diary entries, this story tells of the difficulties and struggles a disabled teen has during her quest to be “normal.” However, maybe being normal isn’t the best thing after all.
