Accidents of Nature

by Harriet McBryde Johnson
£5.99   paperback  Andersen Press (2008)

Accidents of Nature by Harriet McBryde Johnson Seventeen-year-old Jean has cerebral palsy and is wheelchair-bound, but she goes to normal school and has normal friends. But then she arrives at Camp Courage and meets Sara, who welcomes her to 'Crip Camp' and nicknames her Spazzo.
 
Sara is full of rage and revolution against pitying insults and the lack of respect for disabled people and so Jean comes to question her old beliefs.
 
The camp session is only ten days long, but that may be all it takes to change a life forever.
