This was an interesting story as told by the Author. I had a bit of trouble with the flip-flopping between present and past, but once I got the hang of it, enjoyed the read. As a child, I lived in a neighboring country, so it was a bit nostalgic to relive the culture and smells, tastes from so many years ago.
It's compelling and will likely cause you to think about your prupose on Earth - why you are here and what impact you should be making.

I watched an interview with Juliane Koepcke on one of the national news channels. Although I had not read or heard of this story before then, it seemed too unbelievable to be true. The book is written interweaving the past and the present life of the author. As a 17 year old girl, she and her mother flew out of Lima, Peru on what was considered a substandard airline, and encountered a horrific thunder storm, which tore the plane apart. She falls over 2 miles, strapped in her seat into a dense rain forest. The book chronicles her miraculous survival, while interweaving her present life. Being the only survivor and losing her mother in the crash, she deals with not only her grief but also her father's. This is a story of triumph and healing, and of preservation of nature's magnificent rain forests.
