Did you know that this year there will be an estimated 1.6 to 3.8 million concussions in the U.S. from sports and recreational activities? That will prompt a lot of questions, such as:

How do I know if I have a concussion? What happens if I fall asleep? Are all concussions the same? Can I play sports again? What is a concussion, anyway?!?

Travel along as BMX-rider Daniel Garcia uncovers the truth about concussions in order to help his twin sister get back on the basketball court. You decide where Daniel goes to learn about concussions. A beach full of surfers? A physics lab? A public park? A BMX tournament? It’s up to you!

Built-in Adaptive Reader™ technology adjusts the text to your reading level and provides for a seamless learning experience. Other features include a digital notebook, where readers can store the notes they will use  to help Daniel complete his quest.
