This novel really hit me in an emotional way. It centers around Natalie, 27 years old, who gets diagnosed with breast cancer. The story that follows portrays a real life struggle with breast cancer by an author who went through it herself. She gives us a real, no holds barred, account of the issues and feelings of losing your breasts, the chemo, the way people treat you, and the road to recovery. Natalie is a hugely likeable character and as you go through this journey with her you come to love her and feel her struggles and hopes and joys. She’s funny and she’s strong. I think this novel is a must read for anyone that’s suffering through breast cancer, for those who have been through it and survived, and for those of us who have been there to support and love someone with breast cancer.
