Wheelchairs and Watermelon (2004)
The Hollis family was about to meet its first summer guest. Were they ready for this? They knew nothing of wheelchairs and sixteen-year-old paraplegics. Would they do the right things? Say the right things? Help Jesse Fletcher to become and independant young man?
I really enjoyed the story of Wheelchairs and Watermelon. Iris gives the finest of details, and an in-depth look into a western rodeo family. The story's Hollis family takes on life's challenges of a spinal cord injury, with strong family values. That makes for excellent reading and provides us with great role models for all ages.
I really liked the book. I want to read everything you ever write.

This is Iris' third of her series of youth novels of farm, ranch and rodeo life. As well as being filled with excitement, mystery, adventure and fun, Wheelchairs and Watermelon is educational and inspirational.
