Publisher's Summary

Haley Stark is a 16-year-old high school student who suffered a life-threatening spinal cord stroke in May of 2014. Written as a diary to log her experiences, Tying the Ribbon is the honest, personal, and unapologetic story from her perspective. Inspired by the support of her community and the love she received along the road to her recovery, she decided to compile her writings and publish them. The book contains a purposeful mix of positivity and raw, painful emotion. She addresses the physical sensation of paralysis and the feeling of regaining nerve function as well as the mental battles and triumphs associated with overcoming obstacles. Her unsophisticated storytelling voice allows the listener to get to know and relate to her right off. As the book progresses, you will laugh at her peaks and ache for her lows; you may even discover a new sense of gratitude. Sarcastic, serious, and sometimes brutally truthful, this book is an absolute necessity for anyone facing health-related challenges or anyone who knows Haley and the Stark family.

A book of hope

This is a book of hope. Hailey faced total paralysis but with her family, a bunch of people in the medical field and her friends, she was able to recover most of her mobility.
This is a really great book that will make you laugh and cry.

Beautiful and emotional!

This book shows how we, as individuals, can control how we look at the world and how we cope with tragedies sometimes. It is amazing that someone so young had the strength to be so resilient! Although it had sad moments, it was overall very heart warming, and emotional! What a beautiful story!
