Synopsis

Synopsis

Seventeen-year-old Jean has cerebral palsy and gets around in a wheelchair, but she’s always believed she’s just the same as everyone else. She goes to normal school and has normal friends. She’s 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. She’s 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.

About Jenna Lamia

Jenna Lamia - Accidents of Nature
Jenna Lamia's life is a happy juggle of narrating audiobooks, acting, and writing for the television show "90210." She's sure that all three came from growing up in a "storytelling home." Jenna, who recently won an Audie for Solo Narration--Female, began her path to success when her parents read aloud to her nightly. "My father actually made up stories and shared installments of ongoing serials he invented." She most recently narrated Moon Over Manifest by Clare Vanderpool.
