Ice Castles by Leonore FleischerI read this as a kid. It was not my favorite but it was up there. I did a reread recently and while I did not love it as much as I did in childhood, it was still a beautiful story.
For those that do not know this book, it is about Lexy and the world of figure skating. Lexy is training for the Olympics. She puts her heart and soul into her skating and her coach is one of the best.
When Lexy has a horrible accident on the ice, she is left blind. At first she is devastated at the thought of giving up skating. But then she realizes does she have to give it up?
This is a beautiful and touching story. If you love the world of Figure skating then this is the book for you. There is also a romance but it feels authentic. I did en joy this book, both as a child and as an adult. Highly recommended.

How do MPs find time to write so many books? With a propensity to overshare. Teenage Phillips thought Courtney Love should play her in a film of her life. Aged 19, a man stuck his hand up her skirt in a club. She slapped him in response — but it was she who was thrown out. A year ago, she read out in the Commons the names of the women killed by men in the previous 12 months. That latter idea is tinged with sadness, though: Jo Cox — a passionate advocate for sorority — was a friend.

A Special Word For Women ❃Bishop T D Jakes❃
Her humour and passion shine through every page. Loved it. Not to denigrate the talent of Lena Dunham and Caitlin Moran but Everywoman has all the laughs theirs have with a backbone of real glinting anger, which has not had to manicure and mutate itself in order to maintain a cool media career I have had to review loads of books which I couldn't stand. This was the first which I dreaded going back to because there were so many funny and wise things on each page that whittling them down into a review seemed impossible. Jess Phillips is an incredibly down to earth politician, who writes about some terrifying issues with honesty and hilarity.
