"Speaking as a parent this book has made very interesting reading. I wish I had had the opportunity to have read this book whilst my son was actually on treatment, so much makes sense and so much is explained. It really showed what is "normal " behaviour of a teenager with cancer and that is so reassuring to read. There are many lines of the book that rang home as being so true. For example the view of the 17 year old who said that one had to 'get through life', not over it, getting on with life, normal life."
