    Read the original 1975 version as a child... wow

    I have not read this version. But the 1975 version riveted me as a young child. It gripped me from her accident on page one. Not being a Christian I am not sure I will buy this version. I am unsure if it become preachy. I know the original was about tragedy, bravery, and learning how to adapt. I wish I could find another copy as it appeared in 1975. I was born in 1971.

    Incredible

    When i first read this book it was simply just a 'school asignment' i picked up the book thinking ' o great another biography' but by the second page i was into it. This is definitely a book that anyone would love, especially teens in need of the truth.

    Wonderful story of a woman who withstood so much.

    Great inspirational story. We follow through the life of Joni, her tragic diving accident, her struggles through all the operations, her anger with God, her desperation with trying to deal with it all, and in the end, how she was able to find hope and purpose. Very inspiring to all of us who face challenges, although rarely as great as hers. She has real struggles and admits it. She's okay with that. But she has found something to get her through and she honestly wants to share that with us. It is also enlightening to hear about the prejudice she encounters, and how people are uncomfortable around the wheel-chair, it gives insight into how her and many other people with disabilities feel. A must-read. :)

    Original version

    I have the original version, 1976. I did a school project on Joni in my high school, the book was not assigned. I am still on a quest to see or buy the movie version. I wrote a letter to Joni and was very grateful when she replied, not just with a letter back but some cards of art that she had done. I still have them, its been really hard to send them to people as it still awes me when I look at them as a 'fellow artist' hopeful, as to the control and gift that she has.
