Eleven-year-old Nichelle is on spring break vacation in March, 2011, visiting her family in New Mexico; when a cliffside collapses on top of her in her uncle’s backyard, she is bombarded by a new life of broken bones, hospitals, wheelchairs, and walkers. When she finally comes home to Colorado Springs, CO, she finds herself in a whirlwind of physical recovery, bullies, and familial expectations on how to heal, but she feels like a stranger in her own body. While the accident leaves her in a wheelchair for only two months, the emotional trauma lingers for much longer than anyone had ever guessed, and Nichelle is determined to keep it hidden.
