Gabby: A Story of Courage, Love, and Resilience

By Gabrielle Giffords, Mark Kelly
Now in paperback with a bonus new chapter, the New York Times bestseller by Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly--an incredibly inspiring story of adventure, service, love, and overcoming tragedy.

Gabrielle Giffords and Mark Kelly's story is a reminder of the power of true grit, the patience needed to navigate unimaginable obstacles, and the transcendence of love. Their arrival in the world spotlight came under the worst of circumstances. On January 8, 2011, while meeting with her constituents in Tucson, Arizona, Gabby was the victim of an assassination attempt that left six people dead and thirteen wounded. Gabby was shot in the head; doctors called her survival "miraculous."

As the nation grieved and sought to understand the attack, Gabby remained in private, focused on her againstall- odds recovery. Intimate, inspiring, and unforgettably moving, Gabby provides an unflinching look at the overwhelming challenges of brain injury, the painstaking process of learning to communicate again, and the responsibilities that fall to a loving spouse who wants the best possible treatment for his wife. Told in Mark's voice and from Gabby's heart, the book also chronicles the lives that brought these two extraordinary people together--their humor, their ambitions, their sense of duty, their longdistance marriage, and their desire for family.

A new, moving final chapter brings Gabby's story up to date, including the state of her health and her announcement that she would leave the House of Representatives.
