'What makes this journey so inspiring is Mooney's transcendent humor; the self he has become does not turn away from old pain but can laugh at it, make fun of it, make it into something beautiful.'-Los Angeles TimesLabeled 'dyslexic and profoundly learning disabled,' Jonathan Mooney was a short-bus rider-a derogatory term used for kids in special education. To learn how others had moved beyond labels, he bought his own short bus and set out cross-country, looking for kids who had dreamed up magical, beautiful ways to overcome the obstacles that separated them from the so-called normal world.The Short Bus is his irreverent and poignant record of that odyssey, meeting thirteen people in thirteen states who taught Mooney that there's no such thing as normal-and that to really live, every person must find their own special way of keeping on.The Short Bus is a unique gem, propelled by Mooney's heart, humor, and outrageous rebellions.
