It could have been anybody's child. Ten days before Christmas. A room of children, napping on mattresses in their childcare centre, waiting for Santa to arrive. It's a peaceful scene. Until a car crashes through the doors at head height, smashing into the midst of the sleeping children.

The engine revs faster and faster; flames lick the ceiling. Incredibly, no child was killed at the Roundhouse Childcare Centre on 15 December 2003. But Sophie Delezio bears the legacy of that day written on her body.

Sophie suffered third-degree burns to 85 per cent of her body in the fire. She lost both feet, some fingers, and her right ear. Her survival was a miracle to many. Two years later, the unthinkable happens: Sophie is hit by a car, and once again left with near-fatal injuries. Yet again, she defies the odds and survives. Sophie's Journey traces the path of this remarkable young girl.

It is told through the words of friends and family, hospital staff, emergency workers and high-profile supporters. The voices of Sophie's parents, Ron and Carolyn, run through the story, describing the twists and turns of their journey so far.

This book tells of a child's resilience, of the choice between life and death, and of a strength that prevails through suffering. Sophie Delezio has a message of hope for us all. This is her story.

      Comments about Sophie's Journey:

      Sophie's Journey is an uplifting story of resilience, love, and the incredible work of doctors and hospital staff. My only objection would be people who say Sophie is going to do something wonderful with her life / that she was saved to do something special. That is a lot of expectation to put on a child, or on anyone. She has already done something amazing - she survived! I pray she will live her life to the full, whatever that may be for her, even if it means an 'ordinary' life.
      P.S. Don't read this book in public unless you don't mind bawling in front of others!
