Three brand-new YA Novels at the intersection of Bisexuality and Disability!

  1. Far From You by Tess Sharpe - After a car crash Sophie can barely walk and ends up addicted to opiates for her chronic pain, but she’s been clean for six months.  When her best friend (and secret girlfriend) is murdered and the killer tries to make it look like she got Mina killed in a drug deal gone wrong, it only makes Sophie more determined to find the killer.  
  2. Frenemy Of The People by Nora Olson - Opposites attract when wannabe-radical Lexie and emphatically-conventional Clarissa join forces to help Clarissa’s older sister Desi, who has Down Syndrome, achieve her dream of being elected prom queen.
  3. Otherbound by Corinne Duyvis - Nolan is an epileptic amputee Latino boy who travels into Amarra’s magical world every time he closes his eyes.  Amarra is mute, speaks in sign language, and may be falling in love with the princess she is forced to protect in this thrilling fantasy.

Basia Irland- Ice Books

Irland shares a legacy with intrepid 19th century naturalists, and is utterly heedless of wet, dirt and cold. Along with paddling canoes and waterproofing her hiking boots, she’s handy with a microscope in the service of her art, not to mention collegial goals with biologists, botanists, and stream ecologists. She is also an irrepressible researcher, but she is transparently impassioned by water, watersheds, and the flora and fauna (including communities of people) that populate them.

About the Reader



J is a 25-year-old reader and writer from the middle of the Bible belt in the US. She has an obsessive love of YA lit because of how much freedom it allows for mixing genres, going beyond genres, exploring diversity, and how the characters and stories are so full of hope, no matter how dark they get. Because she loves YA so much, she tends to be overly harsh on books that are just the same overused tropes repackaged in a shiny new cover. She regrets deciding to write this in third person. When not reading or writing, J is mindlessly scrolling her tumblr dash, playing video games, and cuddling her puppies.
