    :: Spoiler Alert ::

    A heartbreaking real glimpse at how your life can change in a second. An emotional roller coaster with highest of highs and lows which leave you feeling engaged to the very last page. I would highly recommend this book. An easy read in terms of length complemented by gorgeous photos but such a sad story told with such emotion and honesty.

  • Beautiful, personal story
