Buddy Why - by Steven Salmon

Buddy Why

I have cerebral palsy and use a wheelchair which I drive with my head since I have little control of my hands. I do my writing with a computer that uses voice recognition software. The reason I wrote the novel is I want to share my struggles with people, and help other disabled individuals. The entire book is centered around the word ?why.? All of my life I have been told by disabled advocates that I wasn?t good enough to do anything. I want to make individuals aware of the ?System? and how it needs to be reformed. I want to pave the way for other handicapped persons to accomplish their dreams without the hassle I had.
