Nothing left to live for…that's how eighteen-year-old Daisy Sugarbush feels after an explosion inflicts deep burns over seventy percent of her body, condemning her to six excruciating months in the hospital, where her pleas to stop treatment are ignored.
Blind and horribly disfigured, she wishes only to end her wretched life as soon as possible. Starvation should push her ruined body over the edge—the doctors told her as much—which becomes her game plan.
Then a new therapist, Arthur, enters her life with other ideas, but can he succeed where so many others have failed?

At the tender age of 18, Daisy Sugarbush's life is drastically changed when an explosion causes burns over 70% of her body. Blind and disfigured, she's ready to end her life but her pleas to stop treatment are ignored. Seeking a means to escape this world, she quickly discovers that her new therapist has other ideas.
I will readily admit that I have difficulty reading stories like this. The absolute emotional heartbreak and depth of pain will quickly bring my tears but once I start, the compulsion begins and I can't stop until I've finished reading the story.
In the beginning, this is a story about the right to choose. But it's so much more than that. It's a story of finding yourself when you're ready to give up. It's about finding love when you're at your worst. It's about making the choice not to give up and living the life you have and not necessarily the one you'd want.
If you're looking for a lighthearted read, you won't find it here. At times, Mike Owens' DAISY'S CHOICE was difficult for me to get through because I could commiserate with her pain on different levels but if you have the strength, I highly recommend this story. It's a beautiful story of intense loss to such a capacity that most readers won't be able to relate but it's also a love story under unlikely circumstances.
Be sure to have a box of tissues nearby.
