Born Broken: The Mistakes That Medicine Made

By T.J. Wiltshire

Historical fiction, Short stories, Young adult | Paperback, eBook


There have always been people who are different. Whether it is their sexuality, mental health, or their way of experiencing the world. Throughout history, perceptions of abnormality have changed for the better (much like fashion, though that hasn’t improved all that much so that’s probably a bad comparison – horrible fashion seems to be cyclical, much like the negative attitudes towards difference). There are still battles to be won, but on the whole, attitudes and treatment have improved. The aim of this collection is to represent the misunderstood and challenge those who hold prejudice. They are set in different decades to show improvement of treatment, however minor. In these stories, the most important message is for those who can relate to the characters and/or situations and for you to know that things have gotten better, and will continue to get better still.

T.J. Wiltshire is currently studying Media Production at the University of Lincoln, UK. She hopes you enjoy her first book. She's far too proud to admit that it was actually her little sister who came up with the book's title, and that she couldn't have written this collection without the help of a certain member of staff at college.
