Love Thy Neighbor by Ayaz Virji

In 2013, Doctor Ayaz Virji moved from the East Coast to a town of 1,400 in Minnesota. But in 2016, this decision was tested when the reliably blue, working-class county swung for Donald Trump, and Virji and his family faced anti-Muslim remarks and racism. But in 2017, a local pastor invited him to speak at her church and address misconceptions about what Muslims practice and believe, giving Virji a new vocation he never expected.

Such a Pretty Girl by Nadina LaSpina

In her native Sicily, LaSpina contracted polio when she was a baby. Her adolescence and youth was spent in America almost entirely in hospitals for a quest for a cure. Refuting all stereotypical narratives of disability, the author's journey is one with which many disabled people can identify.
