Praise For Unbroken: 13 Stories Starring Disabled Teens

*A Junior Library Guild Selection*

"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
