Maria Sweeney was born with Bruck syndrome: a rare condition that results in brittle bones and joint abnormalities. This graphic novel follows her as she shares moments of her life, showcasing both the good and the bad and highlighting the often ableist and inaccessible world we live in.

I absolutely loved this touching memoir and would definitely recommend it to people who want to understand how having a physical disability (and a rare condition at that!) and being an ambulatory wheelchair user can impact one's life. Seeing the way that so many people from strangers in the park to doctors who should help her treated her was heart-breaking. I very much admire her strength and her ability to put up with all the jerks. I'm happy that she at least has some supportive people in her life who treat her the way she deserves to be treated. The art is also absolutely stunning! I loved the use of colour and how she captures expressions. It made from an incredible reading experience. I feel like we get so much more than just the words and the story through it.

I feel like disabled voices are often not given enough of a voice in literature and I'm so grateful I got to read this beautiful book! I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. As always, all opinion are my own.
