I received this book through the Goodreads First Reads program.

This book tells the true story of Buddy Miley, a high school quarterback who sustained a spinal cord injury during a game. The author, Mark Kram Jr, paints a real and poignant picture of Buddy's life: his hardships as a quadriplegic, the relationships with old friends and members of his family; in particular, his brother Jimmy and high school friend Karen, and eventually, Buddy's assisted suicide.

Despite the sad and perhaps troubling (to some) subject matter, I really enjoyed reading this book. The fact that this story is true is what makes it; everything written here has happened to someone. I liked reading it and knowing that people lived through this unfortunate thing, and it reminded me that many lives can change in an instant.
