Unbroken: 13 Stories Starring Disabled Teenscover of Unbroken

edited by Marieke Nijkamp

"The 13 stories in this brilliant anthology feature teenagers with physical disabilities, mental illness, anxiety disorders, or autism. The authors of the stories are all people with various disabilities as well, and the stories themselves cover a range of genres...  but most important, none of the teens at the center of the stories are defined by their disabilities."  -- Booklist, Starred Review
