The Way I See It
Inspirational. That's the only word for this book. An incredible story of overcoming the odds with sheer determination, it's the bibliography of a girl who finds herself with an inoperable spine tumour, who loses the ability to walk and loses her vision, but never loses her determination. Nicole Dryburgh tells her story, with insights from her mother and friends. Don't let yourself be put off by the fact that it's rather pink. We read it at book club, and even the boys enjoyed it. I don't think there's much more to say about it, other than that it really makes you realise how fortunate you are.
