Beautifully written and gut wrenching, sweet, sad, funny, hopeful, heartbreaking, so,so many emotions while reading this book. I know I will think of Nina from time to time in the years ahead - it's that kind of book- it stays with you.

Memoir of short essays by young woman diagnosed with breast cancer that then progresses to Stage IV terminal diagnosis. The book chronicles her experiences as her own mother dies of cancer during her treatment, with a friend with a similar disease progression, and dealing with her marriage and her young children as life and the disease move on.

It's written very well and conveys her feelings while leaving out most of the terrible details of her illness.

Brilliant and beautiful. Funny, charming, heartbreaking. Is it weird that I feel proud the author was from Greensboro?! Highly recommended.
