My review

I really enjoy reading books like this one. This is a true story of someone who deals with hard things in their lives. My favorite thing about this kind of book is being able to see that someone else can rise above things. And knowing that I too, can rise above my own hard things. And so can you. We all have them.

This one is about Kacey, as a six year old he lost his legs in an accident. And, instead of letting him get down about it, his parents pushed him. They pushed him to be the best version of himself he could be. Not the crippled boy in the corner. Reading his story, I think that is what made all the difference in his life.

You see, Kacey doesn’t believe there is anything he can’t do. And he has done everything. As I read this one, I was amazed by just how many things he has done. He’s been a Spartan, several times, even getting the Trifecta award. He wrestled, ran track, did cross country, you name it, he’s probably tried it. And he learned a lot of lessons about himself and about life on his journey.

I loved the way he wrote his own book. He did a great job making it readable and interesting. You definitely want to read this one. I loved every bit of it!
