On My Own Two Feet by Amy Purdy

On My Own Two Feet: From Losing My Legs to Learning the Dance of Life by Amy Purdy with Michelle Burford (2014)

Amy Purdy lost her feet and part of her legs after meningitis at the age of 19.   However, she started snowboarding as a teen in the years prior to this life-changing experience.  This story is about how she continues to “write” her life and living it to the fullest.

I will admit that I like memoirs, and I like them best when they seem to be written by the subject themselves.  This one was obviously not completely self-written.  Ms. Purdy is quite an interesting person, and I did enjoy this book.  It just was not the kind of more literary memoir that I tend to prefer, but it was a good, quick read.
