reviewed Angela Ambrosia on
As a teenager, Angela suffered from terrible headaches, swollen glands, sore throats, and constant tiredness. When she was 16, a doctor told her parents that she had leukemia, and only 6 months to live. No one told her anything. For the next three years, there were endless tests, experimental chemotherapy and radiation, and emergency surgery. When she was 19 and looking forward to marriage, she was told--for the first time--what she had. This is the story of Angela's life, from a frightened adolescent in a hospital to a vibrant young woman determined not to give in. It is also the love story of two young people who succeed against all odds in making a life toegether. It may be the most vivid account we have yet had of what it is life--what it feels like--to put up a winning fight against one of the most terrifying of all diseases.
