School-wide, fifteen-year-old Carter Stevenson is known as "that twitchy, stuttering kid" thanks to his Tourette's syndrome. After a disastrous talent show places him at the center of attention, he dreams of disappearing. When his parents announce the family is moving cross-country, that dream comes true. He'll lay low through the summer in his new quiet California town, and when school starts, he'll keep to himself. No one will ever be the wiser.
He doesn't anticipate Ethan.
Seventeen-year-old Ethan Hart, the neighbors' older son, is a few years into recovery from a traumatic brain injury. He is sensitive, joyous, and uninhibited. To him, Carter moves like the music only Ethan sees. He knows he and Carter are destined to be best friends and then boyfriends, if only Carter would get on the same wavelength.
Carter isn't sure about a social life, but as Ethan introduces him to a new world of friends who accept him, tics and all, he starts to see the bright side of not hiding away.
Adapted as a YA edition of the award-winning novel Ethan, Who Loved Carter by Ryan Loveless.
