Here’s a fantastic young woman trying to get her book published through Pubslush.
Here’s how she describes her book:
On a balmy Tuesday during the summer after ninth grade, a car accident on a rain-slicked turnpike flipped Janna’s world upside down, and adolescence dissolved into a summer of restraining belts, feeding tubes, therapy schedules, and chicken salad sandwiches from the hospital cafeteria. Since the accident, her life has been a navigation through the inescapable struggles of her father’s traumatic brain injury, a study of her mother’s resilience and unconditional love, and a challenge to find her own identity and acceptance as an adult. I am now 29. I have yet to find a narrative that encompasses the acute and lasting effects of a TBI, not only on the survivors, but also their loved ones. I have written a terrifically honest memoir, the raw truth about what families go through. TBIs are the signature wound for Iraq and Afghanistan and are spawning concussion legislation in the NFL. For those of us who are asked to love and support a TBI survivor, the struggles are deeply personal and often unresolved, and the victim’s recovery is repeatedly thwarted by insurmountable obstacles, along with the battles fought against insurance companies for proper patient care and effective treatments. It is for children who feel the weight of life crashing down, for loved ones who fight for the new normal, for survivors who fail to see how life is different–and, for everyone else, this is a story about how to embrace life when it doesn’t work out the way we had it planned.”
