This book is not about turning lemons into lemonade. It's about liking lemons. And no one likes them more than Aaron "Wheelz" Fotheringham
When asked by ESPN, "How do you define spina bifida?" Aaron responded, "A great opportunity."
Consumed by the simple but logical belief that riding is more fun than walking, Aaron took his wheelchair and turned it into a toy, playing and practicing on it until there was no place he couldn't go. After beating his peers in all the BMX competitions he could enter, Aaron became the unicorn of the Nitro Circus team, the ultimate dream of every BMX rider and skateboarder alike.
"The effect that Wheelz has on the crowd is out of this world. I mean, we have the best in the world of action sports, and more people come to see Wheelz than anybody else."Quote from Travis Pastrana, -X Games gold medalist and Nitro Circus organizer, leader and performer.
Aaron's story includes pain, determination, failure, motivation, and unimagined success. And yet these things are incidental to the real story. What makes his story great is that his attitude is contagious, and Wheelz is anything but quarantined.
"What a fantastic story of one determined kid with a great outlook on life! Everyone can learn and be inspired by Wheelz! That is what I love most about this book, it's applicable to everyone." Reader review.
