Description

*A Junior Library Guild Selection*
*A Kirkus Best YA Book of 2018 That Feeds Imaginations*

"What makes these protagonists different proves far less relevant than the universal emotions they express." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The stories feature wide variety and high quality, but most importantly, none of the teens at the center of the stories are defined by their disabilities. Teens disappointed by the lack of nuanced depictions of disability in YA fiction will cheer for these compassionate, engaging, and masterfully written stories." --Booklist, starred review

"For intersectional representations of disabled kids leading complex lives--sometimes painful, sometimes funny, never sentimentally inspirational--a vital collection." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Fans of every genre will find someone to root for in this collection focused on disabled heroes and heroines." --Seventeen Magazine

"There is something for everyone in this volume. VERDICT A great choice for all YA collections." --School Library Journal

"Unbroken is a much needed short story collection featuring disabled teens as heroes of their own stories. The anthology successfully subverts stereotypes and long-held literary tropes about characters with disabilities. This strong assortment of stories will attract a large teen audience and should be in collections serving young adult readers." --VOYA
