AWARD-WINNING and BESTSELLING AUTHOR
Parts of this memoir appeared on ESPN and in Rosie.
Fractured Not Broken is a true story of loss, faith, and a rare love that only happens in nonfiction.
In a sweeping and heart-wrenching narrative, Kelly exposes the truth about what happened after a drunk driver rendered her a quadriplegic. She shares how she found her way back—through faith and pain, her community, her family, and the love of a man she’d prayed for.
|Fractured Accident Scene|
Kelly is truly an unsung hero, and her family are amazing. When the accident first happened, it made me both upset and angry. Upset at the fact that both Kelly and Jason's lives were going to change so dramatically, and angry that this was caused by some silly man that didn't give a second thought to driving a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, even though he was told not to.
As I read further into the story, I found I could only admire Kelly's determination and courage at the way she handled the change to her whole life, and also the sheer determination of her family to help her achieve everything she wants.
I am so pleased that both Kelly and Jason had such amazing family and friends around them to help them cope with the changes to their bodies, and I hope they both go on to achieve everything they want.
The highlight of the story for me was Kelly achieving her goal to become a teacher and how the children welcomed her with open arms and showed her so much love, and also her wedding.
I hope that Kelly goes on to write a follow on book so that we can find out if she eventually got the children from the Congo and also how both her and Jason's recovery is.
Everyone who complains about minor ailments and everyday problems should read Kelly's book because it really makes you sit up and think how lucky we are and what we can achieve if we put our minds to it.
Kelly is a true heroine, finding God as she battles with a life as a quadriplegic. Overcoming obstacles every day, she's a speaker, teacher, and Skittles lover. Michelle, Kelly's aunt, is an award-winning and bestselling author who penned Kelly's memoir to bring others hope. She writes stories that move her, and this one is close to her heart.
Time for celebrations
She grew up in the burbs of Detroit with five brothers. No sisters. Each time her mom brought the boy bundle home from the hospital Michelle cried, certain her mom liked boys better than girls. But when her brothers pitched in with the cooking, cleaning, and babysitting—without drama, Michelle discovered having brothers wasn’t so bad. They even taught her how to take direct criticism without flinching, which comes in handy with book reviews.
Michelle is living her dream—writing every day and thanking God for the stories He puts in her path. When Michelle isn’t writing she’s winning ugly on the tennis court. She’s known as “Queen of the Rim Shots.” No joke. It’s ugly.
