In this young readers’ edition of her acclaimed memoir, Being Heumann, Judy Heumann shares her journey of battling for equal access in an unequal world—from fighting to attend grade school after being described as a “fire hazard” because of her wheelchair, to suing the New York City school system for denying her a teacher’s license because of her disability. Judy’s bravery, persistence, and signature rebellious streak will speak to every person fighting to belong and fighting for social justice.
