I was recommended to read this book because of its similarity to my life. I have an SCI and was a member of the British paralympic team, that is where all similarity ends. This book is so sickly sweet and totally unrealistic to the life and recovery of aybody with an Spinal Cord injury I have ever known; even though the people i have known are tough Paralympic and World Class sports men and women. It is always a hard uphill battle to get anywhere near the mental adjustment needed to achieve the success of Lily in this story.
I know this is a work of fiction but its so far removed from reality that anybohdy could have written this drivel with only the minimal amount of background investigation.
I only read this to the end because i never put a book down part way through and have only given this 1 star rating because i was unable to exit the review with a zero review!!
