It was a beautiful day. There was fresh powder on the mountain because it had snowed the night before. Olympic hopeful Aubrie Mindock and her brother Austin were out flying down the mountain when all of a sudden Aubrie took a fall. She was thrown in the air like a rag doll. Her ski pole stabbed her in the lung, causing ribs to break and her to stop breathing. Seconds felt like hours and Aubrie laid motionless on the snow, fighting for air. Finally she was able to take her first breath but she was still not out of the woods. Aubrie's right knee was crushed, making it hard to get to safety. Find out how Aubrie saves her life and gets back up to the sport that she almost lost.

Aubrie taught me to never give up and to always dream big and succeed. I learned that I need to work hard in life and good things will come my way.
I think Aubrie is great. I wrote on her other books too and when I am having a really bad day I think about Aubrie. I am teased and bullied in school and because of Aubrie I no longer have to stay home and miss out on my school day. I don't cry as much either anymore. Aubrie showed me that there is always light at the end of the tunnel and that my pain will not last forever. I am now looking forward to the new adventures to come in my future.
I loved this book but I do have to say that her new book, "Back Up On Skis" is better. Great story and amazing woman. Her story is so inspiring and just makes me cry. Aubrie will inspire you. I would read "Back Up On Skis" first and read this second. This book is great for kids, little kids who are learning to read. Her other books are good for people of all ages but perfect for high school and college students. Even middle school kids, really anyone. She is a great author.
