A retelling of the story of Joni Eareckson Tada. Some conversations and situations have been altered or combined with permission.--Title page.

Diving was easy - you just jumped, gracefully disappearing under the cool dark water. But as Joni plunged beneath the surface something happened that changed her life. A tragic accident meant that Joni was paralysed from the neck down. As the awful realisation began to dawn Joni turned to the one she knew would always be there for her - God. Joni's story is not a story about a miraculous healing. It's a story of an ordinary girl transformed by God. Healing may have been the amazing miracle that didn't happen but Joni's ongoing work with thousands of disabled people throughout the world is a miracle in itself.--Back cover.
