We understand stuff. We just learn it slow. And most of what we understand is that people what ain't Speddies think we too stupid to get out our own way. And that makes me mad.

Quincy and Biddy are both graduates of their high school's special ed program, but they couldn't be more different: suspicious Quincy faces the world with her fists up, while gentle Biddy is frightened to step outside her front door. When they're thrown together as roommates in their first "real world" apartment, it initially seems to be an uneasy fit.

    Freaks Like Us par Susan Vaught (BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: Both character-driven novels are written from the point of view of teenage special education students. Freaks is a kind of mystery while Girls is a haunting story about finding family and identity in the larger world.

I really enjoyed this book; it takes multiple human experiences and gives a demonstration of working to overcome hardships, stereotypes and abuse.

This is the harrowing story of two graduates from a high school special education program and how they adjust as roommates, workers, and survivors. Despite devastating events, their continued quest for family and hope inspires.

I don't have a lot of experience with intellectual disabilities so this was good for me. It's from the POV of 2 girls. Both have disabilities of varying degrees. Definitely pulled on my emotions. ( )

"Quincy, we're...heart orphans. Never had nobody that loved us. That makes us different. It ain't because you a mix-up race. It ain't because I had a child that got took away. Why should policemans care what happen if nobody ever cared?"
