Peeling the Onion by Wendy Orr is an interesting book. It tells a story about a girl named Anna Lockwood who got into a life changing car accident at 17 years old. This book is very truthful and well written. Like climbing a mountain all that matters is being brave enough to make the climb. You don't necessarily have to make it to the top to learn where you're supposed to be, you can find the answer along the way. I also thought that Wendy Orr wrote a well written story because you can feel the pain Anna is in at home and at the hospital. A star of shattered glass, cold against my temple.

Following an automobile accident in which her neck is broken, a teenage karate champion begins a long and painful recovery with the help of her family

I suppose it works for the target teenage audience but the Kindle version was laden with typesetting errors and the overall feel of the writing was clumsy. Even for a teenage audience, the language lacks rhythm and depth, it lacks that quotable poetic quality. The premise is unique and suggests the veracity of lived experience.

Anna was a reasonably happy teenager. She got along well with her parents and her younger brother and sister. She had good friends, was a champion at karate and even thought Hayden, one of the guys in her karate club, might turn into her boyfriend.

She was at the top of the world that summer afternoon. She had just won a karate tournament and Hayden offered to drive her home. On that car ride, everything changed.

It isn't until much later that Anna remembers all of the accident. All that she knows is that she is in the hospital with pain everywhere. In the accident her neck was broken, her ankles both mangled, and her thumb broken in twelve places. She couldn't seem to concentrate on anything, and she lived for the pain pills she was given four times a day.

When she is finally out of the hospital, Anna struggles to redefine who she is. She had intended to become a gym teacher, to continue on and receive her black belt in karate, to take a bicycle trip across Holland. Instead, she finds she can barely move around her own house. School and friends no longer seem as important as they once did. Hayden is acting weird and guilty all of the time and Anna is thinking her life may not even be worth living.

I thought the description of Anna's physical condition was more realistic than in other books. I had never thought of what it would be like to live in constant pain, but this book did a good job of conveying that. However, it seemed that the doctors in this book were completely inept. They were insensitive when Anna was scared and embarrassed and hurting, and they made far too many mistakes.

In 1996, an "experienced" author wrote a very dramatic book, Peeling The Onion. The author brilliantly crafted the twisted story of what she went through in the past. The main character, a seventeen-year-old girl named Anna is in a major car crash which changes her life forever. The physical pain that Anna feels is palpable but the idea that her life is ruined forever, insidious. The title suitably describes Anna's tragedy and dissociation from her former self, but is also indicative of the book's startling complexity and deep emotion.
Before the accident, Anna knew who she was and what she looked like. Now everything has changed, she is a stranger to her family, her friends, and most of all herself. She is no longer the pretty, popular girl who loves karate. Her body betrays her and she knows it will never be the same. The physical pain is an excruciating vortex that sucks the life out of Anna, but it is only half as bad as her emotions and feelings. All the layers that made up the old Anna - her looks, her friends, her sport - have been peeled away, leaving her to face the question of who she really is, and who she wants to be.
Peeling The Onion is a captivating book of gritty survival. Anna's pain, fear, and trauma are rendered convincingly enough that the reader believes that the story is all real and really happening while it's being read. No wonder it is An ALA Best Book for Young Adults and A New York Public Library Book for the Teen Age! My favorite part was when Anna realized that it's not all over, that there is hope after all. I would give this extraordinary book a perfect 10 and recommend it to anyone and everyone.
