Sitting Pretty is an incredibly powerful book that tackles Rebekah’s experiences with ableism and addresses the lack of representation and inclusion, true inclusion, head on.
 
"We don't want to include disabled perspectives just because it's nice or fair to the "handicapped" people.  We want to weave these stories in the collection, we want to consider disabled folks as worthy of their own, ordinary storylines, because without them. we are less robust, less flexible,  and less equipped for the ride we're already on,
 
So yes, representation is nothing short of everything."
