Book Review: Paralyzed Dreams
Fourteen-year-old Pam Wilson’s life is going perfectly. She and her best friend, Lauren, are becoming an amazing volleyball duo, and her dreams of playing in the Olympics are coming along wonderfully.
Then a car accident paralyzes Pam from the waist down, and her dreams for her life are shattered. No more volleyball, no more walking, no more future.
What I Thought:
I really liked this book! It was very thought provoking and captured the difficulty of adjusting to a new life. It definitely left me wondering what I would do if I lost the ability to walk.
Pam wasn’t described too much in herself, but that worked to the author’s advantage, enabling the reader to insert themselves into her position.
The ending was really sweet and a wonderful character arc was made.
Overall, a really inspiring, well-written, Christian book.
Highly recommend this book!
