Daughter trying to cope with her feelings when her mother who is diagnosed with breast cancer. Poignant and quite powerful. ( )
  Sullywriter | Apr 3, 2013 |
This is a simple yet beautiful book about the way a young girl deals with her mother’s breast cancer. It is written in a series of poems. Each poem expresses what is happening at that time with her mother or else with her own emotions. The reader can feel the emotions and the helplessness in the voice of them poems. She handles her worries by dancing and making pottery. Through these two creative outlets she can let out her frustrations and deal with not only the everyday things a girl of fifteen must deal with, but put into perspective her mom’s cancer. Wonderfully written with a great message. ( )

This autobiographical novel in verse is based on the author's youngest daughter's experience watching her mom go through treatment for breast cancer. The beautiful verse and illustrations certainly add something to the genre of cancer books for kids. The book is well done, but I wonder if its appeal will be limited to kids who are going through or have gone through this experience. Still, for those kids it will be an excellent choice. ( )
