This is a very inspiring story that is loosely based on the life of one of the authors.
Kara is a popular junior in high school who is dating the captain of the water polo team. She is a shoo-in to become this year's Homecoming Queen.
But driving home from a party, Kara gets into a terrible accident and wakes up two weeks later in the hospital not able to feel her legs.
Her boyfriend deserts her.
Her ex-boyfriend visits her every day.
But Kara just wants things to return to normal. How can she go back to school in a wheelchair? Why won't her boyfriend even look at her or return her texts?
I recommend this book for fans of The Fault in Our Stars. You won't need as many tissues when reading this book, but you will want to read until the end to find out how exactly Kara copes with all she has been dealt.
Recommended for eighth grade and up: some drinking and a little "heavy" dating
