Beautifully written, extraordinarily powerful, One Two wins the 2017
Millennium Book Award
Through my grandmother’s eyes, I can see clearly
The way things used to be,
The way things ought to be,
The way things really are.
Long ago, my grandma thought I should write a book about my life. For years, I wondered, “What’s so special about my life?”
I finally got it. I was physically very different. In this book, I tell of my many struggles and many successes. For the first time, I share my innermost thoughts on life as a triple amputee. This book is the story of my life. It describes the life of a congenital triple amputee who overcomes incredible odds and finds happiness. This life was quite ordinary and yet, the more one reads into the story, it was nothing short of extraordinary.
Insightful and beautifully written, My Extraordinary Life by author Monica Sucha Vickers will make you laugh and cry whilst taking stock of your life. Conveying an extraordinary level of intimacy, Vickers unique personality and indomitable spirit shines through from the very first page. It’s her life story, one through which she has faced and conquered profound disability, but it also stands as testament and a poignant reminder that nothing is impossible. Devoid of maudlin histrionics, it's amazingly affecting and yet more notably Vickers never forgets about the joyous qualities in life. Yes, she’s had to reach further than most to grasp them, but by fearlessly sharing her own story she invites her readers to take a step back and re-evaluate their own lives and on this level it makes a highly thought provoking read. It’s not one to be easily forgotten and yet what makes her book an absolute triumph is her attitude towards life: her ability to cope, and genuinely be happy which many readers will find incredibly humbling.
An incredibly inspirational read, Monica Sucha Vickers will touch your heart and mind to linger in your thoughts long after you have turned the last page. A must read, My Extraordinary Life is recommended without reservation.
