Finding yourself in hospital, in a bed full of shattered glass, is traumatic. Coming to terms with multiple fractures and probable long-term difficulties is something else again slow, painful, full of obstacles and questions with no clear answers. Anna is used to being athletic, popular, 'normal'. Now she feels the layers of her familiar self being peeled away; nothing is normal or easy. Can she pick up the pieces of her life? What part will Hayden and Luke play? And who, now, is Anna Duncan?

From AudioFile:

This story offers a grim look at the emotional and social effects of serious injury on an Australian teen. Before the car accident that would break her neck, Anna was popular, confident, and athletic. Listeners meet her as she struggles with debilitating pain and then join her on her long journey to regain a sense of identity. Kate Hosking, who reads the storys first-person diary-like episodes, is so good at dramatizing the rage, helplessness, fear, and sorrow of her character that Annas tale is even more darkly sobering. Because of the narrations intimate immediacy, listeners may well feel traumatized along with Anna, though theyll also share in her ultimate--though realistic--recovery.
