About Turtle Boy by M. Evan Wolkenstein

It’s the year of Will Levine’s bar mitzvah, and for his community service project, he’s expected to go to the hospital to visit RJ, an older boy struggling with an incurable disease. Will can’t think of anything worse, mainly because he will have to face his fear of hospitals. Life in the seventh grade isn’t much easier. The kids are relentless–they bully Will because of his funny looking chin.

When Will and RJ first meet, they DO NOT get along! Over time however, RJ gets Will way outside of his comfort zone, and he learns that life is too short to live in a shell.
