This book is beautifully written from the heart by a young girl who describes how her life was thrown upside down and inside out. As the mother of three grown-up children, I felt her pain, fear and confusion, as I did when my own children went through my cancer journey. I got very emotional because, even though my children are in their 20s and 30s, I related to everything she wrote about her emotions. Children should read this book as soon after diagnosis as possible, so that they know that what they are feeling is normal. It’s not something that should be shoved under their nose, but rather left lying somewhere they will find it and read it should they want to. Denial and withdrawal were reactions experienced by two of my children. It is also useful for anyone connected to a child whose parent has been diagnosed with cancer, so that they can understand the child’s emotions. I respect that this book has been written by Emma from the heart and I wouldn’t want to change any of the text or its order. It is clear and simple, making it easy to understand whatever the age of the reader. The simple illustrations are perfect for its audience.
