About this book
In Scraping the Surface, Lyle Victor Albert draws upon his own experiences growing up and coming of age. While dealing with the typical challenges of being a teenager—the struggle of one’s changing body, the search for acceptance and the trauma of post highschool life—the simple act of shaving becomes a turning point in his own acceptance of his Cerebral Palsy. "Objects in the Mirror" sees 'Vic' setting off on a perilous 1000 mile journey through the Rocky Mountains with all his belongings crammed in the back of his 1986 Honda Civic. Searching for new life in Vancouver B.C., Vic may not know where he’s going, but he sure knows what he has left behind.
