General Note
"A memoir" -- Cover.
"Zion Clark has always had big dreams for himself despite the many hardships he faced growing up as a Black disabled child in the foster care system of Ohio. His childhood years were marked by instability as he moved from home to home, experiencing abuse and neglect. And yet his determination and grit pushed him to become an elite wrestler and wheelchair racer. His constant reinvention led him to activism, speaking out about the failings of the foster care system. The list of Zion's accomplishments and accolades is lengthy, but he's not even close to slowing down. As he says, "Work with what you got! If I can do it, so can you." --,book jacket.
