The Chance to Fly
If you enjoyed Fearless, then you’ll love The Chance to Fly.
“MY HEART EXPLODED WHILE READING THIS BOOK! It was an absolute DELIGHT and also so, so important. As a theater superfan, my heart absolutely melted with the sheer theater-ness of this book. All the chapters have titles of musical theater songs and the kids literally joke and use theater songs as metaphors (literally, me). Nat even talked about how she knew the entire Wicked soundtrack back to front without even seeing it on Broadway which is EXACTLY how I consumed it. I love that Nat found her people and her place amongst the theater kids. I was never a performer so missed bonding with that crowd until I was older but honestly, theater kids are the same no matter what age they are! Besides the theater-ness, this book was so important because it features a girl living with a disability without centering her disability. Ali Stroker, one of the co-authors, is a Tony Award winning actress and also a trailblazer as the first person to star on Broadway while using a wheelchair. Together, she and Stacy Davidowitz touch upon all the ways the world does not support people who use wheelchairs, especially in the theater world. I adored this book and will be recommending it to everybody but especially every theater fan (adult and child, I already excitedly texted many of my theater colleagues). It is so important to read diverse books, especially from authors living with disabilities.”Kimi, Buttonwood Books and Toys
