This Is Not a Love Scene

(4) YA Eighteen-year-old Maeve thinks about sex...a lot. But with her muscular dystrophy and wheelchair use, she worries about logistics--and possible rejection. Directing handsome Cole in a student film offers opportunities for flirting, dating, and sexting. Subplots involving a suicidal friend and an exploitative charity organizer are somewhat at odds with the romance, but Maeve's self-deprecating, raunchy narration successfully dispels stereotypes about people with disabilities.
