The third title in the acclaimed Slug Days Stories, now

Irma is Lauren's best friend. Irma knows all the strategies
Lauren uses when her Autism Spectrum Disorder makes it hard to "go with the
flow." Lauren helps Irma learn English words and understand unfamiliar customs.
So why does Irma suddenly want to introduce Lauren to her mountain-biking,
litter-dropping neighbor Jonas? Why is Irma calling Jonas her friend?As if sharing Irma weren't bad enough, Lauren also has an
alarming new problem at school. Their teacher has announced a mountain biking
day when the students will learn to ride their bikes on an obstacle course. But
Lauren still uses training wheels. She just can't face the teasing she will get
when her classmates see them. She isn't brave like Irma. She can't go with the
flow like Dad. How can she possibly face this challenge?
