Ntando Mahlangu was born with a condition that prevented his legs from developing. At age 10, both legs were amputated. Later, Ntando worked with an organization that outfitted him with prosthetics called running blades. At age 16, he earned a silver medal at the Paralympic Games. This has forged Ntando into a strong teenager. This book examines Ntando’s life and teaches more about the Paralympics through narrative text, engaging photos, and graphics. They will come away inspired to get moving and be Teen Strong.
