Book Review: Paralyzed Dreams by C.B. Cook

Title: Paralyzed Dreams
Author: C.B. Cook
Published by: Amazon Digital Serves (2015)

My Rating: ✭✭✭✭✭


Fourteen-year-old Pam Wilson's life is going perfectly. She and her best friend, Lauren, are becoming an amazing volleyball duo, and her dreams of playing in the Olympics are coming along wonderfully. Then a car accident paralyzes Pam from the waist down, and her dreams for her life are shattered. No more volleyball, no more walking, no more future. The only thing she has left is her faith in God… if she would only turn there. 

My Review:

This is a beautifully written book; the author just did an incredible job! Though it is short, that doesn’t mean there wasn’t room for amazing character development—its shortness, actually, I’d say, contributed to the quality of this book. It was so sweet!

Characters/Plot: There was just the right amount of scenes before Pam’s accident to get to know her and her friends, and just the right amount after to see how she manages. The story itself was so sad and yet so good in the way it was written; there were strong Christian themes (which I always love) and so many other good themes, too. The characters were relatable and easily lovable; it was realistically done and the writing quality was awesome. 

This was a true treasure of a book to find and I only wish it was available in paperback or hardcover so I could display it on my shelves! I’d highly recommend it; you will be touched by the sweetness of this beautiful novella. 5.0 stars.
