Product Description

Like any other teenage boy, Austin loves pizza, movies, dancing, and girls. But unlike most other eighteen-year-olds, he has a rare brittle-bone disease, was locked in a mental ward as a child, and is autistic. Yet Austin doesn't let any of that stop him.

His is a world where suffering a broken back is a minor inconvenience and the quest for the ultimate strawberry shake just might be the best day of his life.

Written with remarkable candor by Austin's father, Scott, and New York Times best-selling author Susy Flory, The Unbreakable Boy weaves the beautiful and often humorous tale of how Austin teaches his father - and everyone else he encounters - to have faith in God and trust that one day life's messes will all make sense.

Austin's journey dares us all to believe that miracles are possible, that hope does spring eternal, and that we can find joyous moments to celebrate every day.

    I have yet to read anything with Susy Flory falling anywhere near flat. She has a wonderful talent for working with people and getting their stories into an awe-inspiring, heart-touching book. This book is no exception. It's definitely another "wow."

    Austin LeRette is the first-born baby of two flawed people: Scott is a heavy drinking, ex-navy, macho guy with a propensity to hide in the closet when life gets to be too much--which it does, and often. He also talks a lot to his invisible friend, Joe.

    Teressa LeRrette has beautiful blue eyes--even the irises are blue--with osteogenesis imperfecta (a bone-breaking disease, literally) and a few secrets in her past.

    Little bumps can become big breaks, and there's a possibility she will pass it on to the baby. Sure enough, Austin is born with the same thing.

    There are several unique things about Austin (Auz) they find as he grows up. Yes, he breaks bones right and left. Trips to the emergency room are frequent. He also has autism. Plus a wonderful optimism, a sense of humor that won't quit, and a knack for making friends with absolutely everyone.

    Add in a younger brother who somehow becomes the beloved big brother.

    Still--their parents find they need more than just optimism and humor to be good parents and spouses. They have a lot to learn about love and life and crises.

    This would be the perfect book to begin the new year reading.
