A true story of disability and determination: “From flat-line to sunshine, this story takes you on an unbelievably heart-crossing journey.” —Scott Pettit, Double Take
At age fourteen, Kristin Beale was enjoying a happy summer vacation when a Jet-Ski accident turned her life upside-down—and nearly ended it. Ever since then, she has had to struggle to overcome not only the physical but the psychological toll of her injuries—and her grit and courage have been an inspiration to countless people.
In Greater Things, Kristin offers a raw perspective on everything from how people react to her, to learning how to navigate in and through an inaccessible world, to just trying to make the best of a crummy situation. Filled with honesty, humor, and hope, it’s a realistic yet ultimately uplifting portrait of what it takes to endure hardship with your spirit intact.
