Find A Way - Diana Nyad

Diana Nyad's Find A Way is an unbelievably incredible story of struggle, failure and triumph. Diana begins with a heartbreaking history of abuse throughout her childhood by people she trusted and reveals how she managed to regain her trust in and love for others and herself. She reveals how she became interested in and then practically obsessed with swimming. From getting up before the sun to swim laps every single day of high school to swimming all the way around Manhattan, we see how she finally wound her way to the dream of swimming from Cuba to Florida. We learn of the troubles and issues that arise from such a huge feat. From dehydration and sheer mental exhaustion from staying up for days at a time to tropical storms and the venomous box jellyfish. And we get to share in the pure exhilaration as she stumbled from the ocean after that final swim. This book definitely serves as a reminder that, the only way you won't accomplish your dreams is if you stop trying.
