SELF-HELP / Motivational & Inspirational
A beautiful, successful and privileged seventeen-year-old, Carlana Stone Lawson had it all: she was a gymnast, cheerleader and president of her class. In a moment of bad judgment, she got into a car with some friends in Dallas, Texas, after a night of drinking. A terrible accident occurred, and everyone walked away unscathed except for Carlana, who never walked again.

This is Carlana's story of how she dealt with and overcame adversity. In the telling ofit, she also shows how adversity can be successfully conquered in many areas, including divorce, loss of job and livelihood, survival of abuse, losing a loved one, devastating midlife crisis and battling breast cancer.

Today, Carlana, though wheelchair-bound, skydives, skis, and at thirty-four, has married the man of her dreams. This book will make you weep, laugh and, above all, inspire you.

She is also a weekly featured speaker at ACTION, a southern California-based teen and parent support program and a regular guest on the California radio show "Families in Action." She heads the L.A. School District Job Club for at-risk youth ages fifteen to twenty-one. She speaks regularly at programs for young adults andadults with spinal cord injuries. She lives in Los Angeles, California.
