Owning It : Stories about Teens with Disabilities
by Donald R. Gallo




Overview -
From an acclaimed anthologist, a stellar collection of stories about teens with disabilities -- and the tenacity, spirit, and humor that drive them.

Chris Crutcher takes us on a wild ride through the mind of a teen with ADD, while David Lubar's protagonist gets a sobering lesson from his friends. In Gail Giles's tale, Brad can't help barking at his classmates but finds understanding when he gives a comical (and informative) presentation to his entire school. And Robert Lipsyte introduces us to an elite task force whose number-one enemy is cancer. Whether their disabilities are physical or psychological, the subjects of these powerful short stories -- written by ten outstanding young adult authors -- meet every day with wit, intelligence, and courage.
