Brian decides to go to a party, with a little encouragement. He would really like to find a close friend. Maybe Brian will find with the new year, new friends?

Story Excerpt:

The party looked fun. The little boy sighed. “I don’t know, Winfield.” Brian said to his wheelchair. “What if this party is just like the others?” Since moving to the neighborhood, Brian had been invited to a lot of parties. The kids in the neighborhood had been friendly, and they always invited Brian to their parties, but Brian hadn’t found a friend he could just hang out with.
