Publisher's Description

The Unbreakable Boy is the raucously tender story of the life of a teenage boy with a rare brittle-bone disease who joyfully embraces life’s tragedies and triumphs. Now in trade paper.

Meet Austin, an eighteen-year-old whose body is much more fragile than his spirit.

Despite the painful effects of osteogenesis imperfecta--a rare disease that makes bones brittle and prone to break--and the challenges of living with autism, Austin is an overcomer who inspires everyone he meets.

The Unbreakable Boy is the raucously tender story of Austin’s joyful embrace of life’s tragedies and triumphs.

In honest, utterly real storytelling, Scott pulls back the curtain of his life to reveal personal and family struggles, from marital meltdowns to destructive bouts with addiction.

The only thing that keeps Scott buckled into this ride is his growing faith in God and the conviction that he was chosen as Austin’s dad.

With every twist, this father-son saga breathes hope in to all of us who ever feel overwhelmed, wondering if the end of the rope we’re clinging to is fraying in our hands.

Austin’s life is proof positive that the rope may break, but we don’t have to.

Author Bio

Scott LeRette is an ordinary man with an extraordinary son. Born and raised in rural Iowa, Scott and his wife, Teresa, have two teen sons, Austin and Logan. Both Teresa and Austin suffer from Osteogenesis Imperfecta, also known as brittle bone disease. Austin was also diagnosed with autism at the age of ten and several heart defects. To cope with life and his own personal demons, Scott started sharing his crazy father-son stories on an award winning daddy blog called Austintistic. With each new story, Scott not only began to better understand Austin, he realized his intense, tormented, but loving, and joy-filled son was actually teaching him how to live with faith and grace. When he’s not hanging out with his family, Scott can be found playing guitar in a worship band or polishing his chess game.

Susy Flory is the author or coauthor of eight books, including the New York Times bestseller Thunder Dog. She lives in California and is the director of the West Coast Christian Writers Conference.
