    Growing Up Disabled in Australia
    A rich collection of writing from those negotiating disability in their lives - a group whose voices are not heard often enough<br/>'My body and its place in the world seemed normal to me. Why wouldn't it?'<br/>'I didn't grow up disabled; I grew up with a problem. A problem that those around me wanted to fix.'<br/>'We have all felt that uncanny sensation that someone is watching us.'<br/>'The diagnosis helped but it didn't fix everything.'<br/>'Don't fear the labels.'<br/>'That identity, which I feared for so long, is now one of my greatest qualities.'<br/>'I had become disabled - not just by my disease, but by the way the world treated me. When I found that out, everything changed.'<br/> <br/>One in five Australians has a disability. And disability presents itself in many ways. Yet disabled people are still underrepresented in the media and in literature. In Growing Up Disabled in Australia - compiled by writer and appearance activist Carly Findlay OAM - more than forty writers with a disability or chronic illness share their stories, in their own words. The result is illuminating.<br/><br/>Contributors include senator Jordon Steele-John, paralympian Isis Holt, Dion Beasley, Sam Drummond, Astrid Edwards, Sarah Firth, El Gibbs, Eliza Hull, Gayle Kennedy, Carly-Jay Metcalfe, Fiona Murphy, Jessica Walton and many more.<br/><br/>Growing Up Disabled in Australia is the fifth book in the highly acclaimed, bestselling Growing Up series.
