About the book
16-year-old Ryan and 17-year-old Tommy are two teens from different parts of the country, with different backgrounds, and who go to different schools. But they have one thing in common– they’re both dyslexic. While Ryan has come to terms with his dyslexia and is succeeding at school, Tommy is in denial, and won’t seek support. Tommy’s issue comes to a head when he’s forced to face his greatest fear – reading in public. He turns to the one person he never thought he’d ask for help – Ryan..
