Über diesen Titel


A girl who has suffered a paralyzing spinal cord injury begins the process of emotional healing.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7-9-- Confined to a wheelchair, Megan Murphy reluctantly joins her family on their annual lakeside vacation. Her recent spinal-cord injury, the result of a motorcycle accident, precludes the fun and adventures of previous summers. Yet as the story unfolds, she finds the vacation not only bearable but also therapeutic. She befriends Harris, a lonely boy, and his grandmother, Julie, an actress obsessed with retaining her youth. Megan's involvement with these emotionally needy people lessens her self-absorption and furthers her rehabilitation. She accepts a variety of new experiences, including wheelchair racing, and ultimately confesses that "As summers go, maybe this was a pretty good one, after all." The theme is not original, but the depiction of Megan's world--the constant battle with bladder infections, the frustrating struggles with once routine activities, the haunting awareness of the situation's permanence--is vivid and moving. While the portraits of Megan and Harris are convincing, the portrayal of Julie as an aging actress verges on caricature. This, however, detracts little from the focus of the novel: Megan coming to grips with paraplegia. A sensitive and gritty story, reminiscent of Harriet Savitz's Run, Don't Walk (Watts, 1979; o.p.). --Pat Katka, San Diego Public Library
