Corny as it sounds, this story of a frum quadriplegic will make you grateful for the blessings we take for granted - like mobility and independence. I especially like that Breindy was open about her own bouts with depression; had she been all faith and sunshine, she would have been too good to believe. But inspiring as she is, her friends also deliver an important lesson about how much chessed any of us can accomplish. The end of the book is sad because Breindy is lonely and her friends are all marrying and moving on in life. She leaves her email address, and I'll probably write to her that I appreciated her story, but after a book like that, I can't help feeling how inadequate that is. Nonetheless, something is better than nothing. I just wish I could figure out how I can do more for her.
