Section 2 Post A

. "Osgood- Schlatter Disease" (61)-Osgood-Schlatter is defined by a characteristic soreness and swelling at the tibial tuberosity. It usually originates in those between the ages of 10 and 15 who are both physically active and in a "growth spurt". If unresolved it can be painful, of long duration, and have permanent detrimental effects both on the bone, as well as on a young athlete’s potential for both immediate performance and future college scholarships.

"Assessment" (58)- 1. The act of assessing; appraisal.
2. An amount assessed, as for taxation.

.One emerging theme in the book is to not let anyone judge you for being to small or different and if they do prove them wrong.
