Simon is a typical teenager – in every way except one. Simon likes girls, weekends and enjoys mucking about and playing practical jokes. But what s different is that Simon has muscular dystrophy – he is in a wheelchair and doesn t have long to live. See Ya, Simon is told by Simon's best friend, Nathan. Funny, moving and devastatingly honest, it tells of their last year together. Winner of the Times Educational Supplement Nasen Award.

Author Biography

David Hill was born in the 1940s and spent most of his childhood and teenage years in Napier. He studied at Victoria University and became a high school teacher, teaching both in New Zealand and the United Kingdom. He became a full-time writer in 1982 and is the author of several books for adults. His short stories and plays for teenagers and young readers have been published and broadcast in New Zealand, Australia and the USA. David Hill says writing gives him great pleasure. ‘It's the feeling that you've made something. Lots of other people will make much better things than you, but no one will ever make the same. What you've done is unique and that's a marvelous feeling,’ he says. David Hill writes from his home in New Plymouth where he lives with his wife Beth. He enjoys tramping, reading and cheering for the All Blacks.
