After a tragic accident mountain climbing Roberto a professional mountain climber is now faced with the toughest adventure of his life. Trouble by not being the same person he once was Roberto becomes angered and begins to push the ones he loves away. With his family life falling apart around him it becomes a race against time for his family to save Roberto from losing what life he has left.
Thoughts: this was a hear breaking story of a man so close to falling. This is a glimpse into the struggling life of someone with a disability and the challenges they face. At times I found this book hard to read due to the fact that it's written so well that you are living it rather than reading it. This book proves just how strong a person can be after tragedy changes a life.

Title: The One-of-a-Kind Cat Book
Author: Ciye Cho
What if cats were like humans in the way that we do things. What if a cat were a movie star, chef, genius, or even a detective solving crimes. How would they go about their lives? Would they go about the the same way we do or would it be just a little bit different because they are cats?
Thoughts: This is a lovely illustrated cat book that isn't about just any cats. In this book you will follow the many different lives of many different cats as they take on the rolls that are usually meant for humans. This book is for anyone that likes cats or is just looking for something funny and quick to read. My cats at home approve!
