The sequel to Piper's Someday has our heroine dropped right into a psychotic break that leads her to UVA Medical Center. She's come home to Virginia from Banff, Alberta, a place she's been taken away to so she can unfetter herself from the abuses of her alcoholic grandfather, on full scholarship to play basketball at across-town rival, UVA. Piper will only come if the coach allows her to bring her dog, Someday, and when they arrive, Someday is made the mascot of the team: the Blue Ridge Mountain Dogs. This novel details the newness of college for Piper, her new girlfriend, and the demons that still lurk from six years earlier in her hometown of Richmond, Virginia. It is quite the trip...but mostly an internal one while we see the events of her life and mind unfold. Sometimes harrowing, sometimes funny, Breaking Spirit Bridge redeems our heroine toward the end.
