Follow STEM-enthusiast Adeline and her creative best friend Maya as they embark on a mission to address accessibility issues while educating readers on the importance of creating inclusive spaces for all community members.

In a tale that unfolds at a back-to-school party, Adeline and Maya collaborate, blending Adeline’s robotics skills with Maya’s creativity to design a chair that promises to overcome accessibility challenges. The narrative poses a compelling question: Can Adeline’s invention truly solve the accessibility issue, or will others step in to ensure she isn’t left on the sidelines?

This early reader chapter book serves as a love letter to the disabled community, especially those who are multi-marginalized, by offering representation often lacking in media. Author Mary Fashik (she/her), a transnational, transracial adoptee born in Lebanon, passionately advocates for Disability Justice through her movement, Upgrade Accessibility.

Mary invites readers, parents, and educators to embrace the message that disability is not a negative label but a beautiful aspect of diversity. Her hope is that this book resonates with generations, encouraging them to unapologetically take up space.

As a Susan M. Daniels Disability Mentoring Hall of Fame Inductee and an award-winning podcaster, Mary Fashik’s activism revolves around the Disability Justice principle of intersectionality. She dedicates herself to amplifying the voices of the most-marginalized individuals within the disabled and chronically ill community.

Join Adeline and Maya on their innovative journey, discovering the joy of tackling obstacles together, celebrating friendship, and embracing the power of representation in “Adventurous Adeline and the Back-to-School Party.”
