Shriner’s Hospital is the place where Olivia gets a special machine called a prosthetic arm. She only needs one and she uses it until she grows out of it. Then they make a mold from Olivia’s arm and they use it to make a new one. There are special attachments that she can screw in to it to do things like archery and jumping rope that she normally couldn’t do with her special arm.
Sophie is Olivia’s best friend. Olivia envies Sophie because she can do the monkey bars – something Olivia has always wanted to do. Olivia discusses this with her doctor at Shriner’s Hospital. He suggests she try a hook arm which is pretty much what it sounds like. Olivia likes his idea and she receives it in the mail the next week. She brings it to school and Sophie says, “I am so jealous!” Olivia can’t believe her ears. She explains her envy to Sophie. Sophie just laughs and responds, “Now we can do the monkey bars together!”
This story is based on me. I am pretty much like Olivia. I would like to thank Mrs. McKeighan, my teacher, who helped me do the monkey bars.
