Lauretta is tired of her ratty, old wheelchair.
Finally, one day after school, Lauretta’s mother surprises her by taking her to buy a new wheelchair! But she isn’t satisfied with a regular 5- or 10- or even a 15-speed model… they are all much too slow. Nothing will do but the 92-speed, black, silver and red, dirt-bike wheelchair!

When Lauretta gets a speeding ticket during her one-day tryout of the super wheels, her parents insist that the wheelchair must go back…until her older brother has an accident and only one person can whisk him to the hospital on time – Lauretta, in her amazing wheelchair!
