Stuck in Neutral by Terry Trueman

This book is a frightening little package of really intense ableism, and of course its been heaped with accolades. The authors life very closely parallels that of his characters--he has a severely disabled son with cerebral palsy and has won acclaim/prizes for writing about it, and draws much of the material from his own personal experience as detailed in the afterward. Most disturbing in light of that is that its unclear whether or not the disabled character is killed by his father because of a supposed diminished quality of life, and the book sympathetically portrays a parent who DOES kill their disabled child. Id hate to be Truemans real son. Watch your back kid. Im sick of literature/movies that project non-disabled peoples fears, hatred and insecurities on disabled people and then kill us off because of our unsubstatiated suffering, which is actually just based on non-disabled peoples ideas about how our lives should be. This book sympathetically argues about killing disabled people, and got lots of prizes. Ick. Ack. Bllllllpt. Argh. Eeeek. Hate. It.

Story Of A Disabled Girl - Emotional Story

Chrissie looked at the man sitting opposite her dressed in a grey suit, white shirt, and black silk tie. Not one hair was out of place, tucked neatly behind the dark frames of his glasses, and he was displaying his perfect smile. She sported smokey eyes and dark lipstick beneath a mass of black curls, her green nose stud complimenting her hazel eyes.
