The Grade 8 Student

Gabriel Roosevelt-Jackman never knows what may trigger one of his frequent asthma attacks. It could be a blast of chilly weather, a bit of cat hair, a whiff of perfume, or just agood old belly laugh. Having grown up with days off school, nights in the ER, inhalers, and constant fear, the teenager hopes for the day when a game of pick-up or band practice won’t pose a potential threat.
