Janie’s New Legs

Written by J. D. Thrasher

janieslegsIn the company of a once-abused horse named Silver, a young girl finds herself. Paralyzed in a car accident, the youngster can’t use her legs and is confined to a wheelchair, but her friend- ship with Silver helps her to heal within. Galloping along on the rescued horse, Janie, too, is set free. Told from Silver’s point of view, Janie’s New Legs (BookSurge) by Diana Tuorto (A&S ’02) is an uplifting story of shared survival, hope, and love.
