"The world is a harum-scarum place."
"Harum?" Sunny asked.
"It’s complicated and confusing," Olivia explained. "They say that long ago, it was simple and quiet, but that might be a legend." (from The Carnivorous Carnival)
I’m going to Spain! Sadly I haven’t had any time to prepare any post, so my Tumblr will be a little quiet these next few weeks. However my Blogspot-blog will be updated with pictures and words in my absence.
<3 Have fun and take care!
Tonight I’m starting Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan for fun and The Death of Woman Wang by Jonathan D. Spence for school. I’m also listening to 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami on CD while I drive to school and work. I haven’t read The Rosie Project, but I’ve heard really good things!
Given that disabled protagonist and queer protagonists are hard to find, it’s no surprise that protagonists who are both queer and disabled are even more rare. We wanted to highlight a couple of YA novels that do feature these characters …
Six YA novels featuring queer disabled protagonists:
Passenger by Andrew Smith
Otherbound by Corinne Duyvis
The Shattering by Karen Healey
Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan
Fat Angie by e.E. Charlton-Trujillo
Far From You by Tess Sharpe
We have not yet had a chance to review any of these at Disability in Kidlit, and we’d love to hear more about them. Have you read any of these? Share your thoughts!
