Then one day in art class everyone notices that Erik's painted a picture of himself with green hair! It turns out he's not just creative, he's color blind, too. Once Erik is diagnosed, he and his parents, teachers, coach, and classmates figure out solutions that work with his unique way of seeing, and soon he's back on track.
