Jessica thinks her life is over when she loses a leg in a car accident. She’s not comforted by the news that she’ll be able to walk with the help of a prosthetic leg. Who cares about walking when you live to run?
This is a great story of perseverance that many kids can learn from. I don’t know that I would have that much strength to do what this character does. Not only does she overcome the attitude of being handicapped and turning it into a positive, but she changes the attitudes of everyone around her. A great read for anyone.
