Summary
"Set on the shores of Lake Superior, Wreck follows high school junior Tobin Oliver as she navigates her father's diagnosis of ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). Steve's life as a paramedic and a runner comes to an abrupt halt just as Tobin is preparing her application for a scholarship to art school. With the help of Steve's personal care assistant (and family friend) Ike, Tobin attends to both her photography and to Steve as his brain unexpectedly fails right along with his body. Tobin struggles to find a 'normal' life, especially as Steve makes choices about how his own will end, and though she fights hard, Tobin comes to realize that respecting her father's decision is the ultimate act of love."--Amazon.com
