A Walk in My Shoes
Aucklander, Kate Chandulal is just 13 years old, but has already published a book.
It's called A Walk in my Shoes - and it's about her life, which is quite different from the lives of most kids her age, as she cannot attend school regularly and spends much of her time at Starship hospital.
Kate has severe scoliosis, which she says causes many people to stare at her in the street, and even make unkind comments, which she finds very hurtful. She shares her story with Jesse.
