LIFE-AFFIRMING STORY OF A DISABLED TEENAGER AND HIS CLUELESS CARER, NOW A NETFLIX DRAMA STARRING PAUL RUDD AND SELENA GOMEZ.
The first rule of caring is Don't Get Emotionally Involved. So clueless carer Ben probably shouldn't have agreed to drive stroppy, wheelchair-bound teenager Trevor 400 miles across America to reunite with his deadbeat dad.
Especially when Trevor's mother has absolutely forbidden it. Especially when a road trip like this could go so disastrously, gloriously wrong...
Funny, life-affirming and beautifully bittersweet, this is the story of an unlikely friendship and the journey of a lifetime.
