Huser, Glen. Stitches. Douglas & McIntyre, 2003 [0-8889-553-9]
  Travis lives in a trail with his mom, his tough dad, the other kids. When he 
enters Junior High School he finds two teachers that encourage his interests in 
play-writing and sewing.  He also becomes best friends with a physically 
handicapped girl.  Being the only boy in the sewing class at school, Travis is 
picked on by rough kids at school.  Thus Travis's life at school is a mix between 
good things and the fear of these three tough kids.  For their final 9th grade 
project Travis joins with his friends to produce an extensive production of a 
Midsummer's night dream.  It is a raving success but can the three tough kids let 
everything end happily?  This 198 page book is the story of a boy not interested in 
"boy things" living with a tough father who doesn't understand and some kids who 
constantly tease him.  Travis and the handicapped girl.. two kids are learning to 
be different.
