From a terrible accident that left her paraplegic, Emma Carey has become an inspiration for hundreds of thousands online to live life to the fullest and remind us that if we can, we must.
There on that helicopter, somewhere over Switzerland on a Sunday in June, came the first tiny whisper. A voice that would carry me for years to come. ‘I’m going to be ok. There’s still joy here.’
When Emma Carey was twenty, she fell from 14,000 feet and survived. In The Girl Who Fell From the Sky Emma tells us the inspirational story of how, through one of her greatest tragedies, she found her truest self.
From waking in the hospital a paraplegic to learning how to use her legs again, through the six-year long court case and now being finally free to make the most of her life, Emma teaches us the importance of courage and resilience.
This heartfelt book is more than a memoir, it’s a call to action that reminds us not to take our lives and abilities for granted – to live every day like it could be our last.
‘I love this woman’s outlook and her attitude. She’s formidable and indomitable, but in a totally sunny and loveable way. Thank you Em for sharing your story with the world. It helps all of us.’ TURIA PITT
‘Emma Carey has proven that no matter what life throws her way, nothing can dim her fire.’ MICHELLE AND ZARA, SHAMELESS PODCAST
‘Emma Carey is a powerhouse. This book will change a lot of perceptions of what you think it’s like to live with disability.’
‘The accident honestly is the least interesting thing about Em Carey. The real story is the remarkable lens with which she views the world. I truly believe that the moment that changed her life could also change yours.’ SAM MAC
