On 12 October 2002, the beautiful island of Bali was hit by the deadliest terrorist attack in its history. It claimed the lives of 202 people and left 240 others severely injured.

Nicole McLean was one of those 240. It was her first night in Bali, and Nicole and her friends decided to go to Paddy's Bar for a drink and a dance. Nicole was on the dance floor when the suicide bomber detonated. That night she was critically injured and was left fighting for her life. Despite being one of the first Australians to be evacuated back home by the RAAF, Nicole was to lose her right arm and spend weeks hovering between life and death

This is her extraordinary story. Seen through Nicole's eyes and those closest to her as they watched the horror unfold before them, this is a gripping personal account of what happened that fateful night and Nicole's difficult yet incredible journey towards recovery, motherhood and marriage.

Ten years on and the scars from Bali have not faded. But while those left behind will never be forgotten, this book is a testament to the resilience and strength of human spirit of those that survived. It is a story about hope, second chances and never giving up.

About the Author

Nicole McLean lives in Victoria with her husband and son. She is a motivational speaker, Limbs for Life spokesperson and Bali bombing survivor. Stronger Now is her first book.
