Carrie wants to rollerblade, to zoom down the sidewalk at a hundred kilometres an hour. Her big brother Ernie says it isn't going to happen, that she's too young to do it. But her friend Gregory, a new kid in school with Down's syndrome, inspires her to hold on to her dream. She has no money, no gear, no experience, and no encouragement. But at every turn Gregory's words ring in her ears-"Go for it, Carrie!"-driving her to do more than she, or anyone else, ever thought she could. Go For It, Carrie is an inspiring story of one girl's quest to overcome difficulties and realize her dreams-with a little help from her friend.
