Momentous Events In The Life of A Cactus
by Dusti Bowling
If you read and enjoyed Insignificant Events In The Life Of A Cactus, you will want to read this book, a continuation of Aven Green’s life as a teenager. She enters high school with over 2000 new students. Aven is the recipient of bullying and ridicule as students are introduced to this remarkable girl born without arms. As Aven is challenged with a new school, many new people, and the response of others to her physical reality, she maintains compassion and interest in the lives of other special people who have their own challenges. Sometimes, she removes herself from those who love and support her. Amidst everything else, she works to achieve her goal of riding a horse. This is a good read about accepting others who are different and have unusual hurdles in their lives, and about learning to accept yourself and your own abilities.
