    Bryce remembers it like it was yesterday. The scent of chlorine. The blinding crack and flash of pain. Blood in the water. When she wakes up in a hospital bed, all Bryce can think of is her disastrous Olympic diving trial. But everything is different now. Bryce still feels seventeen, so how can her little sister be seventeen, too? Life went on without her while Bryce lay in a coma for five years. Her best friend and boyfriend have just graduated from college. Her parents barely speak. And everything she once dreamed of doing–winning a gold medal, falling in love–seems beyond her reach.

    But Bryce has changed, too, in seemingly impossible ways. She knows things she shouldn’t. Things that happened while she was asleep. Things that haven’t happened yet. During one luminous summer, as she comes to embrace her second chance at life, Bryce learns to see life for what it truly is: extraordinary.

      Wow!! This novel is absolutely amazing!!! I love it so much and think it is terrific. I have never been so interested in something this much in my life, and trust me I am not a novel reader, especially if it is that long. I read it in three days and I would stay up all night reading it!! I am ecstatic to read more and more novels by this amazing, talented, and young author!!!!!

      In addition, lete28099s look at the payler base coming into Cataclysm from Wrath. I done28099t know about you, but I have a lot of friends who play wow in order to relieve stress. They come along on heroics and normal raids, they may not do the best but they are decent paylers trying to relieve the stress of real life. Theye28099re my friends.Now, with the difficulty being as it is, a lot of them are either scaling back or stopping their WoW subscription entirely. Some may come back, but not all of them. Blizzard has literally scared off my friends. Thate28099s my problem with the difficulty. Why can’t your friends run normal dungeons? Wrath notwithstanding, heroics are called that for a reason.And heroics aren’t even that hard. If they find it stressful to learn an encounter with friends, it’s a mentality issue, not a difficulty issue.And if they’re really incapable of learning to do these fights when they’re current content, then they need to level alts until it’s outdated content and the rest of us are better equipped to carry them.But I really doubt they’re incapable of it. My guild has keyboard turners aplenty, but through much wiping and learning, we killed Arthas and Algalon and Yogg-Saron with them. I can only think of two people in my uber-casual guild who are actually incapable of playing properly, and if content was actually dumbed down to their level, every fight would be a tank and spank you could do autoattacking in greens. These are the 61 points in a single tree people who find the concept of enchanting too complicated, and don’t know whether their hunters need spellpower or agility.If all your friends are really part of that group, they should go play Peggle. I may know people who can’t play chess and are unwilling to learn, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to demand they get unlimited moves in any direction, and make the opposing pieces edible to better incentivize them.
