Life In Spite of Me: Book Review

Kristen Anderson tells a powerful story of the second chance she was given at life in Life, In Spite of Me. When she was 17 years old, after a series of traumatic incidents in her life, she made the decision to lie down in front of a train. Miraculously, she survived, but lost her legs. The story that follows captures her struggles with recovery and then the ultimate discovery of what really makes her life worth living.
I read this book almost straight through in one evening. I was captivated by her honesty and renewed hope at her second chance at life. I would recommend this book highly, especially to anyone who works with teenagers or knows of anyone who is struggling to find life worth living.
