It was one of the darkest days in America's history--Dec. 1, 1997. Freshman Michael Carneal walked into the Heath High School lobby in West Paducah, Kentucky, and started shooting, killing three students and injuring five. One of those injured students was 15-year-old Missy Jenkins, who was left paralyzed from the chest down. But Missy never saw her disability as an end. This is a story of love, forgiveness, courage, and determination--one that will leave readers of all ages inspired to make the most of each day and never take life for granted.
