The Way I Say It

by Nancy Tandon

Dear Reader,

Twelve-year-old Rory Mitchell can't tell you his first name. He's not in a witness protection program or anything. He just can't say R sounds. He expects teasing, but he never thought his friend Brent would side with his tormentors. He also never expected to learn about heavy metal music from his speech teacher.

As a former speech/language pathologist, I worked with many clients who couldn't say sounds in their own names. I wondered what school would be like for a kid whose difficulties persisted into middle school, and Rory was born. 

Kids will cheer and cringe as Rory and Brent make mistakes trying to repair their friendship. Drawing on stories from Muhammad Ali's life, realistic speech therapy tasks, and a killer soundtrack, The Way I Say It celebrates underdogs and how the right friends make you feel like a champion.
