"According to the Cooperative Children’s Book Council’s (CCBC) 2019 study, only 3.4 percent of all children’s literature had a disabled main character."

#MSWL time. Does anyone remember Cybersix? It was a comic, I watched the television series. I'd love to see another gender-bending story (graphic novel or fiction) in my inbox. Also think Nikita with Maggie Q.
