Over My Shoulder

Coming March 2019

On April 20, 1999, Kacey Ruegsegger was a newly transferred junior at Columbine High School. As she sat down to read a magazine in the library that morning, she had no idea she would soon find herself at the center of an American tragedy, an event that would forever change the course of her life. In the aftermath of the infamous shooting, Kacey had to fight for her life and nearly lost her right arm. Thanks to a doctor’s genius and a lifesaving bone and tissue donation, she recovered and found herself on a path to helping others heal. In this story of faith and courage, Kacey recounts how she overcame unimaginable trauma—both physical and spiritual—to build a life, a family, and a home unscathed by the evil she endured.
