About the Book

One summer, best friends, Jack and George, decided to go to summer camp together. Little did they know that their parents would send them to a camp built on the idea of having an inclusive environment for all people. Their plans of spending time together take a turn when they are placed in separate groups. On their adventure, however, they encounter new friends with a wide range of different abilities. Through the eyes of the children in the camp with special needs such as spina bifida, Down syndrome, and autism, Jack and George get to see how our differences are not what define us. Rather, the boys learn a valuable lesson. They realize that it's important to know each other’s abilities and not focus on our disabilities. Jack and George learn through their new friends that our differences truly are what make each and every one of us beautifully unique.
