I was attracted to this book because...
While Sherrie is younger I am, she is from my home town, played for beloved basketball team, the Pantherettes, and then went to work for the Dallas Fire Department, while my uncle was in the upper echelons of the department. In addition to these facts, Sherrie’s story was meaning fun to me after spending four years of having Duncanville paramedics support my parents at their home and then mine as their health deteriorated. I was also attractive to the story of a strong female breaking gender barriers.
