Favorites: A Life Worth Living

One of the aspects I found really interesting in this book was the realism. Lorrie spent a lot of time doing research on spinal cord injuries and the treatment and physical therapy that follows. With some writers, this could lead to a lot of technical information that bogs down the story, but this wasn't the case with Lorrie. 

Following Matt through his recovery never felt like a lesson. The details provided about how a person has to relearn how to adjust their body wait when they are paralyzed and other aspects was not only interesting, but really helped highlight how difficult adjusting to his new life was for Matt. Every therapy session felt very realistic, and that realism helped to build a solid story that could draw readers in. 

A Life Worth Living is available now from Amazon and Barnes and Noble
