Special Edward is a simple and straightforward story.  Written for the pleasure reading of students with reading difficulties, it recounts the experiences of a high school student who decides his life would be easier if he was designated as a special needs student.  Edward is a funny and believable protagonist.  This book would make a decent addition to a 6-12 library.
