Accidents of Nature

by Harriet Mcbryde Johnson

Accidents of Nature Synopsis

Seventeen-year-old Jean has cerebral palsy and gets around in a wheelchair, but shes always believed shes just the same as everyone else. She goes to normal school and has normal friends. Shes never really known another disabled person before she arrives at Camp Courage. But there Jean meets Sara, who welcomes her to Crip Camp and nicknames her Spazzo. Sara has radical theories about how people fit into society. Shes full of rage and revolution against pitying insults and the lack of respect for people with disabilities. As Jean joins a community unlike any she has ever imagined, she comes to question her old beliefs and look at the world in a new light. The camp session is only ten days long, but that may be all it takes to change a life forever.From the Compact Disc edition.
