Sarah Sims was born with a rare, life-threatening disability. Painful surgeries stabilized her and repaired some of the damage, but she remained deformed. The author gets to the core of this character, showing sensitivity to the many psychological, physical, and social aspects of her life.
The book's spiritual tones come in the form of life decisions and allegory rather than an overt message. There are short discussions of faith and ethics. Angela's masterful insertion of life principles gets the point across without causing a head-on collision with opposing viewpoints.
Angela came up with a twist and climax for this story I won't ever forget. I carried this book with me everywhere in case I'd have a free moment to read even one page. I give a big thumbs up for this gripping tale.
