Say What You Will

Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern

Recommend this for teens who like a good romance, winning characters and plenty of romantic obstacles. Another theme is friendship and the struggle to find new friends. The writing is smart and funny, and so are the characters. (There is sexual content, fyi.)

Diverse content: The two teen lovers are disabled in different ways. Matthew is OCD and Amy has cerebral palsy, but Amy’s overprotective mother is the biggest obstacle. A secondary character, Sanjay, is of Indian descent.

Study this for well-written, complex and compelling teen characters. This is an un-romanticized rendering of teens dealing with disability in a world not as welcoming as it should be. So study this for an un-romanticized romance.
