‘Thank you Good Reads and Oleb Books for a copy of this kindle edition.

Synopsis: Take a step back in time with some of the best writers with disabilities as they recount their first adventure, their first heartbreak, and the first time the unexpected treaded into their life. From body transformations to societal setbacks, to love affairs and family trauma, Firsts collects the most thought-provoking and exciting stories of our time by people with disabilities. Contributors include Nigel David Kelly, Kimberly Gerry-Tucker, Caitlin Hernandez, Andrew Gurza, and David-Elijah Nahmod.

These are 11 stories written by 11 authors with a disability of their own. Each story focuses on a different disability whether it be blindness, deafness, autism, tinnitus, etc. It’s all wrapped up in a quick 172 page read. I felt like the book was a change of pace since I was reading about people that would relate to me. With my diagnosis of MS, I enjoyed these stories of people with disabilities achieving their goals despite their obstacles, their upbringing, etc.’
