Bryan’s friends jump off a cliff, and he decides to take the dive.
As he lay on the beach afterwards, unable to move his arms and legs he couldn’t help but wonder if he would ever be able to have children, or even walk ever again.
This book is based on a true story of love and never giving up hope in the face of adversity.
Bryan didn’t want to do a flip. That just seemed stupid. It’s harder to control the way you land, and he was nervous about clearing enough space to keep his head from hitting rocks. He couldn’t really just jump either. After the flippers, that would make him look like a pansy. Bryan spent the majority of his life living near a pool, and he spent a large number of weekends on a lake with his family’s boat. He was a seasoned swimmer. He had no doubt in his mind that he could show up these boys.
Bryan stepped closer to the edge and looked down, waiting for the others to clear out of his way. With perfectly straight arms raised above his head, he bent his knees slightly for momentum and jumped. A huge smile spread across his face as he sailed through the air, the wind caressing his cheeks as the water neared. Bryan knew he had done a perfect swan dive. He only wished he could have seen how beautiful it must have been to the onlookers. His fingertips touched the cool liquid first, his body forming a flawless straight line behind them. But something was wrong. He was sailing through the water, and the river floor was coming too fast.
Praise for the book:
“You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll wring your hands in frustration, and you won’t be able to put it down to go to sleep as you keep waiting to read about Bryan’s happily ever after. This is one of those books that stick with you long after you’ve finished reading it.”
“I plowed through his story, amazed at how he could so easily accept something that would destroy anyone else and just move forward with such a positive attitude. I don’t give many 5 stars, but it’s well-earned. This book really touched me. It’s the kind of story that stays with you for a long time.”
