    I love this own-voices anthology more than I can say. It's just what it says on the tin: disabled teens fall in love, fight evil spirits, have adventures, juggle responsibilities, and do various other things abled protagonists do in YA fiction. Let me say that again: every story in thi...

    I've got a story in this one! In the ARC it's called "One, Two, Three" but in the final edition it'll be titled "A Curse, A Kindness." It's my first queer autistic character, and probably the fluffiest YA story/novel I've written to date. I am absurdly excited about this antholog...

    I haven't read a lot of fiction that features disabled protagonists. So, when I saw this one at the library (and recognized some of the authors' names), I thought I'd give it a try. Here are my thoughts on the individual stories: "The Long Road" by Heidi Heilig The road stretc...

    The average of all the short stories combined is 3,92, but I?m still debating giving it 5 stars just because we need more of these books. I laughed and cried and felt all the stories and all the tiny recognisable things that we disabled/chronically ill people have in common. There ...

    I only read the dedication and i'm already crying. It says "To every disabled reader, dreamer, storyteller- We can be heroes. This one's for us." I have been disabled my entire life, born with vacterl association (and then some) I'm a medical nightmare. vacterl is rare so i'm ...

    This is a short story collection so it's hard to give one rating. I just merged them all in my mind. Some were better then others, per usual. ...

    I was happy to have a book where people with disabilities were represented. I have to be honest here and say I usually don't lile short stories books, even more so when they are written by different authors, because I usually love some and the rest are meh. But being a book of disabled...

    Overall: 3? I love the idea behind this anthology: own voices short stories about disabled teens! I want to give it all the stars. Unfortunately, it was a bit scattered, some of the stories felt pointless, and the genre hopping from story to story was disconcerting. There were a fe...

    ?This company is made of grit and steel. A thousand stories, told and still unfolding.? - A Play in Many Parts, Fox Benwell Unbroken is easily the best short story anthology I have come across. These thirteen stories are exquisite in not just their #ownvoices representation of di...

    Beautiful cover, and beautiful stories! While all the authors are disabled, I?m not 100% sure their characters follow the exact disability. Either way, I love the intersections of the characters and the vast range of writing styles. A more comprehensive review with opening li...

    It's so difficult to rate anthologies, which is why I've rated every story separately. This was definitely worth the read, and I especially loved the insights into what it's like to deal with any kind of disability. Heidi Heilig - The Long Road (3/5) This first story has a lovely ...

    In this entire collection, I only came across one story I just felt 'meh' about, and that is a great ratio. These are stories about characters with disabilities and the authors and characters are incredibly diverse. Hooray! The disabilities are varied and include physical, emotiona...

    Actual rating: 3.15 stars This anthology was not bad, but it was not good either. I was mostly bored and I was keenly aware I am not the target audience as I am no longer a teen. I like the intersectionality of the stories, there are many disabled characters of colors and queer dis...

    I?m glad to be done with this book, and I mean that in the best way. I enjoyed it, but it took me an absurdly long time to read. That has nothing to do with the quality of the book, and everything to do with school and work taking up all my time. This was a great anthology. Almost...

    As a disabled person myself I was really excited about this anthology and the representation in it that is long overdue. Sadly overall I felt very meh about the stories, but I'm so glad this anthology exists. 1. The Long Road by Heidi Heilig - 3 stars Ok overall - a lot of setup a...

    This is without a doubt the most disappointing read for me in 2018 and I'm upset to say that. As a disabled person I was really looking forward to this since there's not much media I can consume that is relatabe to me in that sense so I thought this would be the answer but I was let...

    This is such a great premise for a short story collection, and I really enjoyed this book! We're starting to see a lot more diverse books being published, but there's still a lot more room to publish own voices books starring disabled characters, and I hope Unbroken helps push the publ...

    It's hard to put a star rating on an anthology. Some of the stories were really good, and some just didn't hold my attention, so take this rating with a saltshaker. I appreciated from the moment I heard about it how there was an anthology of stories solely focused on teens with disa...

    I love that this book exists. Disabilities of every kind are so underrepresented in literature and it makes me happy to see authors coming together to try and change that. My favorite short stories: Britt and the Bike God - Kody Keplinger Per Aspera Ad Astra - Katherine Locke...
