Why do we choose the friends we do? Dominic knows. He explains just how special his pal Victor really is. After all, Victor tells heart-booming ghost stories, claps the loudest at Dominic’s baseball games, and performs a fabulous floating frog stroke. Two young boys experience a spirited, carefree friendship that transcends one boy’s disability.
