In this touching story, John, a boy with Down's syndrome living in a small fishing town, is made to think of himself as a hangashore, a Newfoundland term for "an unlucky person deserving pity" or a worthless fellow who lacks the gumption to fish. Although the term in from Newfoundland, Geoff Butler's story about self-respect and acceptance is a testament to the universal human spirit.

(Key Words: Fiction, Newfoundland, Canada, Hangashores, Down's Syndrome, Juvenile Literature, Self-Respect, Acceptance, Fishing).
