This novel shares the story of Ross Maloy, who has recently been diagnosed with a rare type of eye cancer. This story follows his journey of being a seventh-grader, wanting to fit in, and eventually learning to love life despite circumstances. This would be a great read for students to learn about having a chronic illness or being diagnosed with cancer. This would be a great read for those in upper elementary to middle school. ( )

Finally! An endearing and honest look at a kid with cancer. This is not saccharine or devastating. It's feels real, hard yet funny, weird and unsettling and hopeful. I'll even forgive the school talent show troupe (I've read five 2020 kid book releases with talent shows...I'm over it). ( )

Wink is a 2021 Lone Star novel. Be prepared to laugh or cry......

Ross wakes to discover his eyes really swollen, but it doesn't hurt, and that starts his year with a couple of really, really, really bad days. One trip to the doctor and he's immediately called back, discovering he has eye cancer. Needless to say, life changes a lot. Ross would be lost without his best friend, Abby. She sticks by him, making jokes or being real, whichever best suits the situation. When school begins, people are super nice or they stare. Several flashbacks show how we get to the present semester, but the present revolves around eights week os proton radiation. It's every day after school.

Challenges. To begin, let talk school. His other best friend Isaac has abandoned by him and Abby. The two left usually eat outside until it's too cold. Ross has to continually treat his eye, which some people find gross (they're middle school kids). He also has a crush on Sarah, who is one of the most popular girls in the school. The bully, Jimmy, seems to be especially uncaring toward Ross. In the midst of just going to school with cancer, Ross discovers that some students has stooped to a new low, and it's truly, truly awful. It's here that Ross needs an out.

Moving on. Ross decides to find something new--something to focus on. His technician who zaps him with protons loves, and I mean, loves music. He challenges Ross to find what he likes. When Ross does not know, he asks Frank to just play his stuff. The music speaks to Ross. He asks for guitar lessons. These lessons at Frank's house help him find another part of himself--a part that isn't cancer.

I have to admit, the novel made me cry--I think it's the whole Covid thing and people losing family members. Anyway, the book isn't sad. It's actually very hopeful and amusing. I like Ross's dad who tries hard. He's a good dad who has a lot on his shoulders; there's no depth to his character, but middle school kids don't want to read about dads! Ross's step-mother is a stereotype but still a good stepmom. Those of you who love realistic fiction and good stories will be hooked on this one. ( )

I love this book! I love everything about it. This book made me laugh. It made me cry. It made me angry for Ross. I just loved it.

Ross has found out that he has cancer where his right eye is. It is is seventh grade year and now he has to deal with this. Someone is making fun of him. Another issue to deal with. He has to have a laser shot into his eye. Another issue. One of his best friends has ghosted him. Just another issue in Ross's life. At least he has Abby, his other best friend by his side.

This book is great for middle school students. It teaches about compassion and just being there for someone. Cancer is scary, but Ross shows you that you can get through it. ( )

Seventh grader Ross Maloy has a rare tumor that's being treated with proton radiation; he's going to lose the sight in that eye, but the first opinion he got was a surgery and treatment that would have left him blind in both eyes, so this is...better.

Ross has two best friends, one of whom (Isaac) drifted away soon after his diagnosis; the other, Abby, stuck by him - but has just found out her family is moving, and they're both devastated.

Also, someone has started making and circulating cruel memes ("Cancer Cowboy," because Ross has to wear a hat, etc.). And his hair is starting to fall out. So...it seems like a good time to pick up a guitar, and fortunately, radiation tech Frank is willing to give Ross guitar lessons.

WINK is a story of loss (sight, hair, friends; also, Ross's mother died of breast cancer, and he lives with his dad and stepmom) and discovery (new friendships in unexpected places; new music).
