Top 5 Protagonists with Physical Disabilities
Maddy from Everything, Everything
Maddy obviously had to be on the list! Everything, Everything is one of my favorite books of all time and the movie didn’t disappoint me as well! Maddie suffers from SCID (Severe combined immunodeficiency) and basically is allergic to everything. She hasn’t left the house for seventeen years and longs to explore the world outside. She hasn’t met anyone physically other than her mother and nurse and spends most of her time online. This book is honestly so cute and I highly recommend it for YA Contemporary readers!
Hazel from The Fault in Our Stars
How could I leave out Hazel?! I’m sure most of you guys know already, but Hazel has lung cancer and is able to survive only because of an experimental drug called Phalanxifor. I admire Hazel for her beautiful personality and the book (and movie) is one of my favorites!
Auggie from Wonder
Although I read this book many many years ago, I still remember falling in love with it! Auggie has a facial deformity, which he calls mandibulofacial dysostosis. This book is just so so beautiful and I’m planning on re-reading it before the movie!
Lexi from Mindspeak
I read this book a few years ago and it was one of my favorite series back then. It was definitely an enjoyable read, but then it got boring. Anyway, Lexi has the ability to read minds, but whenever she does, her nose starts to bleed (cringey, right??) I know that it isn’t exactly a physical disability, but it is something hehe!
Ava from The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender
Ok, so I know that this isn’t exactly a physical disability too… but it was something closest to it that I could find… The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender is also one of my all time favorite novels. Ava is born with wings and there isn’t any explanation as to why. This book starts with the story of her great grandmother and explores all their strangely beautiful lives. I highly recommend this one too!
