About my first book: A New Beginning: Fighting to get back up on skis
From Aubrie: I wrote my story to see if someone can benefit from it. It is my first book and it is for people of all ages. I guess you can call it serious.
It was a beautiful day. There was fresh powder on the mountain because it had snowed the night before. Olympic
hopeful Aubrie Mindock and her brother Austin were out flying down the mountain when all of a sudden Aubrie took a fall. She was thrown in the air like a rag doll. Her ski pole stabbed her in the lung, causing ribs to break and her to stop breathing. Seconds felt like hours and Aubrie laid motionless on the snow, fighting for air. Finally she was able to take her first breath but she was still not out of the woods. Aubrie's right knee was crushed, making it hard to get to safety. Find out how Aubrie saves her life and gets back up to the sport that she almost lost.
