dc.description.abstractThis thesis analyzes the question: How are children with disabilities represented in young adult novels? To answer this, I selected five young adult novels that feature at least one character with a disability: Wonder, Fish in a Tree, Rules, Out of My Mind, and El Deafo. I explore the way different disabilities are represented in these novels, the impact of these disabilities on the characters, the power the character with a disability exhibits, and the impact each author had on their book. Ultimately, the results will be used to explore how literature featuring characters with disabilities can be used in classrooms in a beneficial way.en_US
