“I think you should try out for the Angels.”
Whoa! Didn’t see that one coming.
My breath rushed out of my lungs and it seemed like I couldn’t get enough air. “You what?”
Had Bryn hit her head during practice when I wasn’t looking?
It was cool having a friend who didn’t treat me like an invalid all the time,
but could she really forget that I came in a package with this rubber and metal jigsaw puzzle?
I didn’t. No, I remembered every minute of every day.
All I ever wanted was to be a cheerleader. That's it. Just lead my squad running and screaming across the gym floor while the students rocked the bleachers. But that will never happen. Dreams like that stopped after my accident. I'm broken. Like a violin with a missing string—the music inside of me is all garbled up. And despite what my perpetually cheerful physical therapist says—there is no happy ending for someone like me. My BFF and Seb, the one armed assistant coach, keep preaching to me about their God and His love until I just want to scream. But there's something about the two of them—something peaceful and happy that I some times think I want. Something that starts me believing that maybe the most impossible dreams can come true.
Broken back, broken family, broken dreams—only One can bring Tansy the strength and peace needed to realize the impossible.
