Summary:

Amy Purdy, who inspired a nation on Dancing with the Stars and has been called a hero by Oprah Winfrey, reveals the intimate details of her triumphant comeback from the brink of death to making history as a Paralympic snowboarder.

In this poignant and uplifting memoir, Dancing with the Stars sensation Amy Purdy reveals the story of how losing her legs led her to find a spiritual path. When the Las Vegas native was just nineteen, she contracted bacterial meningitis and was given less than a 2 percent chance of survival. Her glimpse of the afterlife—coupled with a mysterious premonition she’d had a month before—became the defining experiences that put Amy’s life on a new trajectory after her legs had to be amputated. She wouldn’t just beat meningitis and walk again; she would go on to create a life filled with bold adventures, big dreams, and boundless vitality—and share that spirit with the world. In 2014 Amy—the only competitor, male or female, with two prosthetic legs—claimed a bronze medal for the US Paralympic team in adaptive snowboarding. She then became a contestant on season 18 of Dancing with the Stars, and viewers were captivated as the girl with bionic legs managed to out-dance her competitors all the way to the finale.

Amy’s journey is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and the capacity we all have to dream bigger, defy expectations, and rewrite our stories. Amy was given a second chance for a reason—to use her life to inspire others. Her powerful memoir urges us to live life to the fullest, because we are all a lot more capable than we could ever imagine.

“Her riveting memoir, On My Own Two Feet, is shot through with honesty, compassion, a sunny steeliness, and, above all, a sense of humor.”—O, The Oprah Magazine
