The fifth book featuring 17-year-old Dawn Rochelle is a page-turner that will captivate readers looking for melodrama. When Dawn was 13 she was diagnosed with leukemia. Now, after nearly three years in remission, she faces another medical crisis--a stroke, which has left her partially paralyzed. The doctors, physical therapists, and occupational therapists are optimistic about her recovery, but Dawn, discouraged by the setback, falls into despair. The effects of her paralysis are impossible to hide, and she's embarrassed by her limp, slurred speech, and lopsided smile. She's also certain that she'll lose her boyfriend. What's best is the depiction of Dawn's turbulent emotions as she faces another tough struggle. Give this to McDaniel's fans, of course, as well as other readers who can handle a good cry.
