This book is about a girl named Jessica who in a tragic bus accident with her track team, loses her leg. After waking up in the hospital, Jessica deals with the depression of losing her dreams for a short while, but she keeps her head high and ends up getting a prosthetic leg and learning how to run again. I loved this book! It was very inspirational and motivating! I would recommend it to anyone! MS, HS - ESSENTIAL. Student Reviewer: AJL
