In Lara Avery’s inspiring new read Anything But Ordinary, 17-year-old Bryce shows us why we should always live to make every day count.
An unusual story
17-year-old Bryce Graham’s dreams were about to come true as she prepared for the Olympic trials. She remembers that day perfectly—the familiar smell of chlorine, the screaming fans in the bleachers and the anticipation of the dive ahead of her as she launched off the board. But then there was a loud crack. A blinding pain. And everything went black.
Bryce wakes up in the hospital. She can hear her parents’ voices, her family within reach. But when her eyes open, Bryce comes to terms with a shocking reality—she’s just awoken from a coma. And five years have passed.
As Bryce lay immobile in a hospital during those five years, life went on without her. Her best friend and boyfriend are graduating from college. Her sister is all grown up and her parents are not at all the way they used to be—they barely even talk anymore! All Bryce can think about is her disastrous diving trial and the half an inch of space that shattered her Olympic dreams. Bryce doesn’t feel like she fits in to her life anymore. Everything has changed.
But Bryce has changed, too. She knows things she shouldn’t—things that happened before she woke up...and things that haven’t even happened yet. What does it mean—and will Bryce find her place in the world again?
Anything But Ordinary is an inspiring, bittersweet story about the importance of living life to the absolute fullest.
