    I really enjoyed reading this book A book about young women who are strong, determined and at the same time vulnerable in their own struggle I love how the author manages to describe the universe of feelings that occur simultaneously, it fills his characters with humanity and that is why wile you are reading you feel as close to a complex subject like learning to live with disability, as to others like friendship, and regaining trust in one self.

    Not to minimize the aspect that this is about a teenage girl, but Shla has so much to overcome and deal with Even before the accident she was far from routine she was a totally dedicated athlete, adopted into a family with different skin color, and had already become aware that she was attracted to other females Now she s working through her anger over her appearance and having her life goals ruined irrevocably while dealing with the pain and frustrations of adapting to a lower leg prosthetic Not to minimize the aspect that this is about a teenage girl, but Shla has so much to overcome and deal with Even before the accident she was far from routine she was a totally dedicated athlete, adopted into a family with different skin color, and had already become aware that she was attracted to other females Now she s working through her anger over her appearance and having her life goals ruined irrevocably while dealing with the pain and frustrations of adapting to a lower leg prosthetic And now there is that mutual attraction with her tutor Very well done exploration of some very sensitive issues
