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.

Beautiful Memoir

Haley is amazing! Strong, honest, vulnerable. I highly recommend this audiobook, especially for anyone who has gone through (or is going through) a medical crisis, and their loved ones.
