This is a limited-edition copy of Special, one of 200 existing copies that will ever be made. The book was to be published by Barefoot Publishing in Tulsa, and they released 200 Advanced Reader Copies. However, Barefoot publishing closed and pursued a book store adventure, so Special will be coming out through Roadrunner press in Winter of 2019.
That said, this is a chance to grab a very limited copy of the original story before the rerelease comes out in 2019. More than anything, this can be considered a collector's item.
Isaac Treaux is special. His special is not like most people would assume, however. He is not special in regards of talent, physical gifts, or likelihood to succeed. He is the kind of special that made kids point at him and snicker from across the hallway. Isaac was born with a mild form of Down syndrome, and with it comes constant bullying. This is why his classmates in the small town of Bryer Springs, South Dakota are confused when a beautiful cheerleader named Amber moves in next door to him, and the two instantly strike a friendship. Although Amber is almost the complete opposite of Isaac, the friendship becomes inseparable and Isaac begins to show how special he truly can be.
