I just finished FarWorld, a new book by J. Scott Savage. (I enjoyed it, by the way.) The hero, Marcus, has a physical disability and while reading, I thought of how seldom I come across characters with disabilities in fiction - particularly the central character.
And now I'm curious... Can anyone suggest more books featuring a character with a disability (of any kind)? I'm sure there are many and would appreciate being pointed toward some. I'm most interested in children's or young adult fiction where the disability is not the focus of the story - just one characteristic of the person.
Note: I posted this same question in the young adult forums.
