Dane is a smart, gifted ass, until Guillain-Barre paralyzes him.
Dane was “untouchable, a deity on skis,” but now he’s helpless and immobile in a Florida rehab center miles away from his upstate New York home. The arrogant eighteen-year-old initially rejects the assistance of the physical therapist, sure that he can regain his former strength with determination and self-control. As his stay in rehab drags on, however, he begins to contemplate his failed relationship with his girlfriend, the price he’s been paying for his never-give-an-inch attitude, and the plight of Carissa, a teen who spends most of her days at the rehab center visiting her irreparably comatose father.
