Waiting on Wednesday: Push Girl


Push Girl 

Chelsie Hill and Jessica Love

PD: 06.03.14 by St. Martin's Press 


Kara is a high school junior who's loving life. She's popular, has a great group of friends and an amazing boyfriend, and she's a shoe-in for homecoming queen. Even though her parents can't stop fighting and her ex-boyfriend can't seem to leave her alone, Kara won't let anything get in the way of her perfect year. It's Friday night, and Kara arrives at a party, upset after hearing her parents having another one of their awful fights, and sees another girl with her hands all over her boyfriend. Furious, Kara leaves to take a drive, and, as she's crossing an intersection, a car comes out of nowhere and slams into the driver's side of Kara's car. 

When Kara wakes up, she has no memory of the night before. Where is she? Why are her parents crying? And, most importantly -- why can't she feel her legs? As Kara is forced to adjust to her new life as a paralyzed teen, where her friends aren't who they seemed to be and her once-adoring boyfriend is mysteriously absent, she starts to realize that what matters in life isn't what happens to you -- it's the choices you make and the people you love. 


I have been waiting for a book like this to surface. Recently, people in wheel chairs have been featured in shows such as Glee and have "pushed" past the boundaries of society in what they are able to accomplish. 

I hope this book resonates with everyone everywhere :)


  1. This book looks great. Here's my WoW

  2. I've personally been thinking about books on people with disabilities so this one is actually pretty great. Hope you get a chance to read it soon!

  3. This sounds heart-breakingly life changing for Kara and as an empathetic reader I'll be crying in no time.
    Great pick. I hope you get it soon!

    Thanks for stopping by Disappear Into Reading!

  4. Thank you so much for featuring our book! We hope you love it! :-D
