An inspiring, real, and fresh young adult novel about how life can change in an instant by Chelsie Hill, one of the stars Sundance Channel's series "Push Girls." Kara is a high school junior who's loving life. She's popular, has a great group of friends and an amazing boyfriend, and she's a shoe-in for homecoming queen. Even though her parents can't stop fighting and her ex-boyfriend can't seem to leave her alone, Kara won't let anything get in the way of her perfect year. It's Friday night, and Kara arrives at a party, upset after hearing her parents having another one of their awful fights, and sees another girl with her hands all over her boyfriend. Furious, Kara leaves to take a drive, and, as she's crossing an intersection, a car comes out of nowhere and slams into the driver's side of Kara's car. When Kara wakes up, she has no memory of the night before. Where is she? Why are her parents crying? And, most importantly -- why can't she feel her legs? As Kara is forced to adjust to her new life as a paralyzed teen, where her friends aren't who they seemed to be and her once-adoring boyfriend is mysteriously absent, she starts to realize that what matters in life isn't what happens to you -- it's the choices you make and the people you love. Co-written by "Push Girls" star Chelsie Hill, whose real life inspired Kara's experience, this uplifting novel takes young readers from tragedy to triumph with an unforgettable and unique heroine.

A light, ultimately upbeat look at life after spinal cord injury. "Kirkus Reviews" A tender, inspirational, and, most of all, "important "story about courage and adversity and never losing sight of who you are. Jennifer Brown, author of Hate List "Push Girl"'s Kara doesn't want to be an inspiration, but she (and author Chelsie Hill) are exactly that in this honest, feisty, and painfully real story of one girl's adjustment to life on two wheels. Deb Caletti, National Book Award finalist and author of The Queen of Everything "Push Girl" is more than a survival story; it's about the power of turning pain and anger into hope and inspiration. Filled with heart and humor, it's an unforgettable, moving read. Tamara Ireland Stone, author of Time Between Us A compelling journey into Kara's unforeseen, life-altering event and a revealing look at society's various reactions to the physically challenged. It's a story of love, desire and regret, tragedy, loss and triumph, of those who stand with you through the darkness and others who can't, or simply won't. Kara's journey to build a new normal is a wrenching but ultimately triumphant one of strength, determination and heart. Go, Kara! Laura Weiss, author of Such a Pretty Girl"
