A champion cross-country skier in training for the Winter Olympics, Janine Shepherd's life was irrevocable altered during a bike ride to the Blue Mountains when she was hit by a truck. Doctors warned her parents that she was not expected to survive her ordeal. Even if by some small chance she recovered, she would never walk again: Her neck and back were broken, as were her right arm, collarbone and five ribs. Her right leg had been ripped open, she had sustained massive internal injuries, severe lacerations to her abdominal area and had lost five litres of blood. The bleeding alone was enough to kill her. Coming to terms with her shattered Olympic dreams, refusing to believe what expert medical staff were telling her about her chances of any kind of recovery, Janine focused every sinew of her being on healing her broken body and crushed morale. Her fighting spirit was rekindled by watching small planes flying overhead. She said to herself, "If I can't walk, I'll fly." And fly she did. Within a year she had her private pilot's licence; 12 months later, her commercial pilot's licence; then her instructor's permit. And all the while she pushed her body to mend itself and forced her legs to walk again, step by painful step.

Never Tell Me Never is an inspirational biography from Janine Shepherd, who was an Olympic cross country skier until she was hit by a truck while out riding one day. Throughout the book she shares her journey to full recovery from the accident which she barely survived and defied specialist doctors who told her that she would never be able to walk again and tells of how she didn't let her injuries define her but when on to other successes. This book is sad at times but also very motivating and inspiring.
