About the Book
Lynn Quigley is devastated when she realizes her friend Hope is missing from their swim team practice because of a paralyzing illness called Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS). Lynn's twin sister, Lisa, a golf team member, is also crushed by the shocking news.

Lying in her hospital bed, Hope agonizes over her sudden condition with a tear stained face. What is wrong with me? Why canít I move my legs? Why do my arms and hands feel strange? She is racked with pain. Am I going to die?

While visiting her in the hospital, the twins witness Hopeís struggles and fears which seem insurmountable. They are determined to support her every step of the way.

What are their creative plans they devise to assist Hope through this affliction? Lynn's swim team and Lisa's golf team collaborate with the brainstorming ideas.

Maybe Hopeís ordeal proves to be too much for her, especially after hearing from another patient with the same illness. Does she have the strength it takes to overcome her adversity? And who teaches who a lesson on patience?

Readers of all ages can appreciate this story of a rare paralyzing illness.
