Hopeful Olympic diver, 17 year old Bryce, fails to tuck into a
This story could almost fit the new classification New Adult which deals with the lives and loves of those from 18-24, but it lacks the explicit sexual behavior and drugs, alcohol, and college experiences that some of those do. But Bryce being an athlete and dedicated to nothing but her sport had already avoided all of those high school temptations, too, on her way to the Olympics. Now it has all passed her by: prom, graduation, those senior experiences that ease us out of teenhood. That is one of the frustrations that Bryce feels, that everyone else has grown past her with experiences she can't share and that she is still a 17 year old with a teen's feelings in a newly awakened 22 year old body that she has to strenghten and teach to do everything again.
She is helped by an attentive Vanderbilt med student, Carter, who has followed her progress. She has become more than a patient to her (we should all be so lucky!), and he assists her on her journey back to normalcy. But Bryce doesn't know what to do with this now changed life, with this body that will never be the strong one it once was. Others consider her a medical miracle, but the injury that put her into a deep, long sleep has changed her brain in ways she has told no one about, in ways she can't quite believe herself. Can she really ever be ordinary again.

Awesome book, would recommend reading!!
Exciting read, full of suprises and keeps you guessing. The only reason i didnt give it 5 stars was because it didnt end like i had wanted it to, but then again, not all stories have a happy ending.Was this review helpful?

Left me wanting more
This was a very good book full of great detail. I loved every part of it except the end. I feel like the ending of the book left me with many questions. Overall though it was a great book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
