My Perfect Imperfections

Book Description:
I can’t talk. 
I can’t walk. 
I’m alive. 
But, am I living? 

My name is Lily Cooper, and I have Cerebral Palsy. 
I can’t seem to control my muscles. My body refuses to cooperate. 

I may be confined to my wheelchair, but my mind is sharp. 
And I’m stubborn as hell. 

I will not allow my disability to define me. 
I will pave my own path in life. 
I choose strength. 
I choose to live.

The rain slamming on the windshield is making it impossible to see clearly. I can tell she’s too upset to notice that she’s driving too fast, especially around the curves. I bite my bottom lip and swallow the scream from escaping when the van slips a few times. I don’t want to yell at her for fear that she’ll turn around to check on me while driving. Instead, I hold my breath and pray that she’ll slow down.
The headlights come from nowhere, blinding us. Where did they come from?
“Hold on, Lily!” she yells as she spins the steering wheel.
My heart stops beating when the van swerves out of control. I shut my eyes as the deafening sound of the screeching brakes and the crunching metal hits me like a tidal wave. The shattered glass tinkles around me, and everything moves in slow motion. As our van continues to spin, a deathly silence encases me.
I hear nothing. I feel nothing. I’m floating…and my life flashes before my eyes.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was way out of the genre on this one, but that is OK because sometimes I like to keep my reading fresh, and this book certainly did that.

Cerebral Palsy. [CP] comes in varying degrees of mobility.

We meet Lily. She is one of the strongest young girls I have known. I thought this author did a fantastic job, because a lot of people with restrictions on their health [mobility etc] have to be strong for all kinds of reasons. I have been around a lot of people with limited health and you know what? They can learn to laugh. Learning to live life to the maximum.

As too with all disabilities this is not what defines a person. Its a person with limitations. And that was what Lily had, but she took her life to the fullest she could.

The love interest for Lily was greatly written, she is a young woman in love, which comes with all the hearts desires, wants, needs, and heartbreak that we all face.

Lily could be you or I.

This book keeps life into perspective. We moan, we groan, but as the saying goes, there is always someone worse off than you.

Will you enjoy this book?
I challenge you not to.

Will you cry?
I expect so.

Will you smile.
Oh yes.

Will you think of this book many weeks/months from now?

I LOVED this book
