Abstract:

From the youngest living recipient of the Medal of Honor comes an extraordinary inspirational memoir that will change the life of every reader. Moving and unforgettable, You Are Worth It is an astonishing memoir from an extraordinary young leader.

November 21, 2010. U.S. Marine Lance Corporal Kyle Carpenter was posted atop a building in violent Helmand Province, Afghanistan, when an enemy grenade skittered toward him and fellow Marine Nick Eufrazio. Without hesitation, Carpenter jumped on the grenade, saving Eufrazio but sacrificing himself. Severely wounded, it took dozens of surgeries and almost three years to reconstruct his body-- yet his spirit was unbroken. This is Carpenter's story of how he battled back from the gravest challenge to forge a life of joyful purpose. -- adapted from jacket.
