About the publication

It was just like any other Saturday morning for Simon - a rugby match at school, with his girlfriend Emma in the crowd. But then an accident changes everything; leaving Simon paralysed, Emma devastated and Simon's best mate Danny stricken with guilt. How do you cope when your future is snatched from you? Emma's determined that her relationship with Simon will withstand the trauma - but he's not so sure. And while Danny wants to stand by Simon, his growing closeness to Emma threatens all three of them... An honest look at the effects of disability on three teenagers - none of who will ever be the same again.
