The Unbreakable Boy is the raucously tender story of the life of a teenage boy with a rare brittle-bone disease who joyfully embraces life’s tragedies and triumphs. Now in paperback.

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.
  • Hope does spring eternal.
  • We can find joyous moments to celebrate every day.

    Scott LeRette is an ordinary man with an extraordinary son. Born and raised in rural Iowa, Scott and his wife, Teresa, have two teen sons, Austin and Logan. Both Teresa and Austin suffer from Osteogenesis Imperfecta, also known as brittle bone disease. Austin was also diagnosed with autism at the age of ten and several heart defects. To cope with life and his own personal demons, Scott started sharing his crazy father-son stories on an award winning daddy blog called Austintistic. With each new story, Scott not only began to better understand Austin, he realized his intense, tormented, but loving, and joy-filled son was actually teaching him how to live with faith and grace. When he’s not hanging out with his family, Scott can be found playing guitar in a worship band or polishing his chess game.



    Susy Flory is the author or coauthor of eight books, including the New York Times bestseller Thunder Dog. She lives in California and is the director of the West Coast Christian Writers Conference.
