They All Have One Thing In Common
by Page Turner

Unbroken: 13 Stories Starring Disabled Teens by William Alexander, Fox Benwell, Keah Brown, Dhonielle Clayton, Corinne Duyvis, Heidi Heilig, Kody Keplinger, Katherine Locke, Karuna Riazi, Francisco X. Stork, Kayla Whaley, and Kristine Wyllys, edited by Marieke Nijkamp

Summary

Unbroken is an anthology of stories that all focus on disabled teenagers. These stories encompass all kinds of genres and all kinds of disabilities. One thing is clear, though: disabled or not, everyone should get a chance to star in their own story.

Review

This book is alive in so many ways that I lack the words to describe. The characters are real, human people beyond whatever their disability may be. I think that was the best part of this book for me. While their disabilities are incredibly important and change their worlds in a way abled people will never truly understand, being disabled isn’t any character’s defining characteristic.

I always love anthologies like this for their variety. For some of the stories, the only thing that makes them similar is that the main character is disabled – and that’s almost the best part. There are so many different genres and characters and themes. If you’re skeptical about this one because it’s an anthology, don’t be. It’s definitely worth the read.

Yours in love and literature, Page.
