"Neverworld Wake" by Marisha Pessl
Read the absorbing new psychological suspense thriller from acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Marisha Pessl. Learn more
In rhyming couplets, a fourth-grader named Louis explains that “Words come out backwards/And I don’t know why.” He is glad for his special teacher, who tells the class about others who have overcome dyslexia, like Albert Einstein and Walt Disney.
The inclusion of Magic Johnson is important, because, as Louis’s dad says: “We’re all good at something. You just have to find it.” Louis tries a few things that don’t work out, but after a summer growth spurt, he finds he’s quite the basketball player. His prowess on the court gives Louis the confidence to try harder at school and the determination to live successfully with dyslexia.
Knees (128 pages, softcover) costs $9.95 and is recommended for readers ages 6 to 10. All proceeds will benefit the Lawrence School with campuses in Sagamore Hills and Broadview Heights; it serves students like Louis. The coloring-book-style illustrations are by Youngstown native Joe Rossi.
