Often times it takes a debilitating disease for a person to realize what they have is pretty good. A tingling and numbing in his hands, and excruciating pain floods high school senior and cross country skier Dane's body. Guillain-Barre' Syndrome is a sinister disease that causes paralysis and it hits every inch of Dane, except his eyes. Recovery is possible, but is also slow and painful which gives Dane's arrogance a time to "thaw." Thaw is a remarkable first novel by Monica M. Roe about an unfamiliar disease.
