Review by: Sharon Holland on July 06, 2014 :
ane is a normal 21 year old girl, except for the wheelchair she has to use. Because of her condition she doesnt have friends except for her parents, little sister and brother. Nolan and his parents move the neighborhood, and after meeting Jane's parents and hearing stories, Nolan wants to meet Jane. The first time they meet, besides talking, they go to the neighborhood park, where Nolan with a little help gets Jane on a swing for the first time.

What starts out as friendship fastly becomes so much more...Jane experiences many firsts in her 21 years...swinging, kissing, and love to name a few. .But with any life, all it takes is a freak accident to change the course of many lives....

In my opinion this is THE BEST so far by Yolanda, and though I did write a quick review...it does NOT give this beautiful story justice!!!

Loved it. Be prepared to shed a few tears when you experience the love story of Jane and Nolan from the being to the end. Along with the book's tender side, there is also some humorous moments that I found myself chuckling when I was reading it. I absolutely love Liam and Stella, Jane's two younger siblings, they definitely will steal a piece of your heart. I would recommend this book.

This book was amazing. It was beautiful, heart wrenching and sweet. A tragic love story. The most beautiful book I have read after 'The Fault in our Stars'. Excellent job Yolanda Olson.

*I was gifted this copy by the author for an honest review*

Let me start this review by saying that I had no idea what I was getting into when I started reading 21 Years of Jane. I certainly had no idea what Legg-Calve-Perthes disease was or how it could change a person’s life so drastically at no fault of the victim.
Jane (Starr) East suffers from this debilitating disease that has put her in a wheel chair without the use of her legs. At twenty years old, she is virtually a recluse as her peers find her a good target for cruel gossip and torment. Her parents take it upon themselves to find her a friend.
Nolan Ransom doesn’t set out to have his life changed or to change an extraordinary young woman’s life. His carefree, quick wit, and compassionate nature make him the perfect foil for Starr. They soon become fast friends as Nolan pushes to make every unattainable wish come true.
I cannot tell you how much this book moved me. I don’t think I’ve cried over a story like this in a very long time, if ever! There were times I thought my heart might jump out of my chest and there were times I had to stop reading just to get a grip on my emotions. There are moments when we need the perspective that a good cry can bring and Starr helped remind me how thankful I am for the little things we all take for granted. Props to the author, Yolanda Olson for sharing a story that inspired such high emotions and for daring her readers to look beyond the physical.
