Walker Brown was born with a genetic mutation so rare that perhaps 300 people around the world also live with it. Walker turned twelve in 2008, but he weighs only 54 pounds, is still in diapers, can't speak and needs… to wear special cuffs on his arms so that he can't continually hit himself. Expanded from Brown's Globe and Mail series about Walker, he sets out to discover his son. Some strong language. Canada Reads 2012. 2009.
