Book Description: 

Like any other teenage boy, Austin loves pizza, movies, dancing, and girls. But unlike most other eighteen-year-olds, he has a rare brittle-bone disease, was locked in a mental ward as a child, and is autistic. Yet Austin doesn’t let any of that stop him.His is a world where suffering a broken back is a minor inconvenience and the quest for the ultimate strawberry shake just might be the best day of his life.

Written with remarkable candor by Austin’s father, Scott, and New York Times best-selling author Susy Flory, The Unbreakable Boy weaves the beautiful and often humorous tale of how Austin teaches his father—and everyone else he encounters—to have faith in God and trust that one day life’s messes will all make sense.

Austin’s journey dares us all to believe that miracles are possible, that hope does spring eternal, and that we can find joyous moments to celebrate every day.

Review

The book very moving and inspirational.  Scott tells the life story of his son in such a way that you feel that you are with him on his journey. Even though the topics can be heavy, he relates them in a light, easy manner.  I could not put this book down and enjoyed it from start to finish!  It will encourage you to overcome the obstacles in your own life and come out on top. I highly recommend reading this book!

    This is a simple but powerful book cute pictures with short captions underneath. It is endearing and insightful and not only reminded me to live in the moment but also to be more patient with my daughter and to build memories that will last a lifetime. This book is truly uplifting and engaging.

      Every father wants to be a great dad. We want to do what is best for our children, and be the kind of father they need so that they can flourish in life. But how do you do that? In this book Jim George offers his advice on how to be a great father. In this book he urges fathers to pay attention to communication and how our kids view not only our words, but our actions. He reminds us that a great father is a father who helps his children to develop their God-given gifts and potential, and be all that God has made them to be.
