But what's different is that Simon has muscular dystrophy - he is in a wheelchair and doesn't have long to live. See Ya, Simon is told by Simon's best friend, Nathan. Funny, moving and devastatingly honest, it tells of their last year together. Winner of the Times Educational Supplement Nasen Award.
