Meaningful Quote
As a girl who likes sports and knows what it's like to eat, sleep and breathe my sport, I really connected with the main character in this book. Jessica, who loves running, has to deal with a pretty big obstacle that threatens to keep her on the sidelines. And for an athlete, that's devastating. I can't imagine having to give up the one thing that made me feel most alive.

Because the book is written from her perspective, it was interesting to watch Jessica's thoughts change from the beginning to the ending of the book. It really proves that your attitude can overcome even a physical disability. Overall, this book was inspiring and hopeful. It's a quick read worth your time!
