REVIEW by LAWonder10:
This is an amazing true story about an outstanding boy/man.
I can't imagine the devastation of watching a six-year-old boy - especially a son - run in front of a semi truck and have his body "whipped way" right in front of me!
This story is of young Kacey McCallister's journey through life as a double leg amputee with his stubborn determination and unbelievably tough supporting family.
Kacey's attitude is very inspirational and the obstacles he has faced and overcome is "mind-boggling"! He has not only overcome them but has "rose-up" above them as conqueror.
Kacey's account of his life's experiences are very captivating and humbling at the same time.
In 'When Life Gets You Down, Rise Up!', from the first life-changing accident through his elementary, middle school, and High School years to fulfilling a Church mission, starting his own family and gaining higher education, Kacey openly tells of the ups and downs of his life and how he continually "rose above" each obstacle. He also tells of the ongoing healing techniques when his health and physical disability sometime slowed him down.
This is one book all people should read and be encouraged by.
It is written from Kacey's Church of Jesus Christ's standpoint, but one that people from all walks of life can truly benefit from.
I offer a Five Stars rating of literary talent and in inspirational effect.
*This was gifted to me with no request for a positive review. This is my honest review.
