Twelve Clean Pages

Twelve Clean Pages
A Memoir
Nika Maples

Nika was diagnosed with lupus at the early age of twelve. She wasn't expected to live very long and came close to death several times. While in college she suffered a stroke and was a quadriplegic for months. Gradually she learned to walk, talk and function again.
She went on to become a teacher, inspiring others with her humor, hope, and courage.

I was a little leery of this book. Memoirs can so often be dry and boring, especially when dealing with someone's remembrance of difficult times. But this lady is a talented writer. She was able to write a beautiful story about a terrible tragedy and make it interesting and inspiring. Her outlook on life is honest and positive. Her relationship with her Savior shines through the pages. I'm just hoping this isn't her only book.

I received this book free of charge from Goodreads in exchange for my honest review.
