"This is a YA read, but adults will also enjoy and learn from this fast-paced book. I started it with every intention of reading a few chapters before bed. Five hours later I had devoured the entire book. The characters are beautifully flawed and I found myself cheering for them when they couldn’t cheer for themselves. There are some hard, but real, issues addressed in this book. I appreciate that Beckie Lindsey addresses topics that are often ignored and spotlights the reality that there is more going on that what we may ever see with our eyes. This is a great read for teens who are fighting their own battles, as well as adults who would like insight into the struggles of today’s teens and young adults face."

Patience During Cancer

Patience During Cancer

Since I began this unwanted journey of ovarian cancer back in January, there has been a lot of waiting.  I hate waiting. You probably do too. Yet it’s something we all must do. For example, did you know that according to AAA Insurance, the average American will spend...

Finding Peace and Joy in Cancer

CANCER. No one likes the word, particularly when it concerns someone you love or yourself. I heard the dreaded "C" word during my recent visit to the ER. I haven't felt right for several weeks. A CT scan, ultrasound, and other tests all point to ovarian cancer....
