“A light, ultimately upbeat look at life after spinal cord injury.” —Kirkus Reviews
“A tender, inspirational, and, most of all, important story about courage and adversity and never losing sight of who you are.” —Jennifer Brown, author of Hate List
“Push Girl's Kara doesn't want to be an inspiration, but she (and author Chelsie Hill) are exactly that in this honest, feisty, and painfully real story of one girl's adjustment to life on two wheels.” —Deb Caletti, National Book Award finalist and author of The Queen of Everything
“Push Girl is more than a survival story; it's about the power of turning pain and anger into hope and inspiration. Filled with heart and humor, it's an unforgettable, moving read.” —Tamara Ireland Stone, author of Time Between Us
“A compelling journey into Kara's unforeseen, life-altering event and a revealing look at society's various reactions to the physically challenged. It's a story of love, desire and regret, tragedy, loss and triumph, of those who stand with you through the darkness and others who can't, or simply won't. Kara's journey to build a new normal is a wrenching but ultimately triumphant one of strength, determination and heart. Go, Kara!” —Laura Weiss, author of Such a Pretty Girl
CHELSIE HILL was one of the stars of the Sundance Channel series "Push Girls." Chelsie was a high school senior when she was driven home by a friend who had been drinking. Their SUV veered off the road and crashed into a tree, snapping Chelsie's back and paralyzing her from the waist down. With her father, she went on to establish a nonprofit foundation. The Walk and Roll Foundation, to aid people with spinal cord injuries.
