Life In Spite of me is one of those books that I couldn't put down, I just had to know more about her story and the events that lead her to make that decision to try to end her life. It is any easy to read book, but the story can be heartbreaking at times, and at times bring great joy also.

We get to take Kristen's journey through her childhood as an all-american child to the events that changed her world forever. We see her lay across the train tracks waiting to die to realizing she has lost her legs. The beautiful thing about this story is the inspiration it leaves with us. The fact that God is out there and can turn tragedy into a beautiful story. Kristen will never be the person she was before the attempted suicide, though I believe she is a stronger person today because of it.
