Gabby: A Story of Courage and Hope
From Simon and Schuster
Recipients of the 2012 Annie Glenn Award
The story of Gabrielle Giffords and Mark Kelly is a reminder of the power of true grit, the patience needed to navigate unimaginable obstacles, and the transcendence of love. Their arrival in the world spotlight came under the worst of circumstances. In January 2011, Gabby was the victim of an assassination attempt that left six people dead and thirteen wounded. Gabby was shot in the head; doctors called her survival “miraculous.”
As the nation grieved and sought to understand the attack, Gabby remained secluded, focused on her against-all-odds recovery. Intimate, inspiring, and unforgettably moving, the book provides an unflinching look at the overwhelming challenges of brain injury, the painstaking process of learning to communicate again, and the responsibilities that fall to a loving spouse who wants the best possible treatment for his wife.
