Unbroken Book Cover

Warrior. Actor. Friend.

Heroine. Traveler. Sister.

Magician. Biker. Lover.

In this stunning anthology, #1 New York Times–bestselling author Marieke Nijkamp teams up with fellow disabled authors to create a collection of fictional stories that dispatch with the tired, broken stereotypes—and reclaim narratives and identities.

Weaving together tales as disparate as interstellar war, enchanted carnivals, and dating debacles, this anthology celebrates the varied experiences of disabled teens, including teens of color and diverse genders and orientations, without obscuring the realities of their disabilities.

In turns hilarious and heart-stopping, these short stories share a common thread—one that has bent over time, but will never break.

The contributing authors are award winners, bestsellers, and newcomers including Kody Keplinger, Kristine Wyllys, Francisco X. Stork, William Alexander, Corinne Duyvis, Marieke Nijkamp, Dhonielle Clayton, Heidi Heilig, Katherine Locke, Karuna Riazi, Kayla Whaley, Keah Brown, and Fox Benwell. Each author identifies as disabled along a physical, mental, or neurodiverse axis—and their characters reflect this diversity.
