I absolutely loved this book. I was captivated by the back cover and the lady at the book store, told me she just read it. I found out when I went to pay for it, that it was about a womans struggle with cancer and I wasn't so sure I wanted to buy it, but I had heard how wonderful it was. I am SO glad that I bought it. It was a wonderful read and it wasn't the least bit down, like I thought it was going to be. It was well worth the money I had to pay for it. I highly reccomend this book.

Kelly Corrigan and I have many things in common. First, we are Irish American girls raised in a Catholic family. She has 2 older brothers and I have 2 older brothers. Most importantly, we are both breast cancer survivors. Her story is very similar to mine in so many ways. Kelly loves her Dad very, very much. I am also fortunate enough to still have my Dad on this earth, and I indeed love him very much!
Kelly's story is a tale of love and survival. Once I started this book, I couldn't put it down. I read it while on vacation. It was a pick-me-up, not a bring-me-down. It's a story I will never forget!

I like Kelly's writing style, it is like talking to a good friend over a few drinks. the story is sweet/sad, but ultimately happy. i could not relate to a lot of the things she writes about, she certainly is 'daddy's little girl' which i am most def. not.. but there are other parts of the book which i completely related to. i would recommend this book to anyone.
