Product Description

Crazy about basketball, twelve-year-old Sam Davis longs to be a part of the team that practices outside his window. But Sam's different from the other boys: he has cerebral palsy. Confined to a wheelchair, Sam's never touched a basketball. He's never even been to school.

It's 1968, and only a few enlightened educators understand that a boy like Sam might have a brain that's as good as anybody else's. When the Stirling Junior High principal finally agrees to let Sam enter sixth grade, Sam gets his chance to move into the world beyond his window.

All Sam knows about school, he's learned from Miss Perkins, the English lady who cleans his apartment. Perkins spends hours reading to Sam about Winston Churchill. Sam knows so much about him that Winnie— as they call him—starts talking to Sam in his head. At first, Sam doesn't understand what a boy in a wheelchair has in common with one of the world's greatest leaders, but Winnie says, Don't you see Sam? I was just a boy once, too. A boy nobody believed in.

Junior High school can be difficult, not just for boys in wheelchairs. Sam learns that if he can't make it work at Stirling, there are places for boys like him. When the challenges seem overwhelming, Winnie reminds Sam, Our lives are what we choose to make of them. If Sam can only believe in Winnie, he‘ll finally be part of the team—a window boy no longer.

    Wonderful story about a very intelligent boy with cerebral palsy. I enjoyed it very much. It was interesting and thought-provoking to see how different people react to him and his abilities.

    This was a great story of Sam Davis, a boy with cerebral palsy. Society oftens sees the wheel chair rather than the person in it and concludes that a person with disabilities isn't intelligent. Sam, his mom and their housekeeper set out to change this distorted perception and fight for an opportunity for Sam to make his place in the real world. This story will open your eyes to the struggles and challenges that Sam and others with disabilities face each day.
