Based on a true story.
Beauty Queen, Jody Angel Taylor, believes her life is all mapped out – glamorous, clever and popular, and due to marry her handsome boyfriend, she has it all. Until one night she has a devastating car crash, ending up paralyzed – and her perfect world collapses.

Committing media suicide and publicly blamed for her own accident, everything around her falls apart. She becomes a lonely recluse, feeling she’s lost everything including her legs – her boyfriend to her best friend, her father to an affair, her mother to depression – but above all she fears losing her mind.

What she doesn’t know is that someone across the globe is about to throw her a lifeline. Can she find the courage to take it?

Determined to love again and clear her name, she embarks on a new adventure that will transform her life beyond all expectations.

What a fantastic pick me up story! Do you need motivation? Do you feel down or at the end of the road and not sure you can keep going?

Here is the story of Jody who in her young age has everything, loving parents who are extremely proud of her, she is popular and beautiful, smart and already at her age 19 found love of her life. Everything is just the way it’s meant to be, until the moment that will cost her all of it.

When she feels she will never be happy again, when all parts of her life are slowly falling apart and there is no hope, with a little support she find her way out of despair, depression and starts fighting for new life, for her future whatever it may be.

I loved Jody and my heart was breaking for her through out the whole book, I was rooting for her and wish her all the best. The fact that this book was based on the real story makes it even more powerful. Author really knows how to express all possible feelings with words and pulls you right in with easy flowing writing style.

I would absolutely recommend this book to everyone.
