From the author's website:
Norah Levy has just completed two years of treatment for leukemia and is ready to go back to the “real world” of middle school. She knows it’ll be tricky–but like the Greek mythological characters she read about while she was sick, Norah’s up for any challenge.
But how do you explain something to others that you can’t explain to yourself? Can Norah take her cue from her favorite Greek myth? And then, once she finds the words, can she move forward with a whole new ‘normal’?
I appreciated that Norah, the main character, was frustrated with the showy little ways that are connected with cancer awareness, and I thought the author captured her inner frustrations well, but all of the other issues in the book overshadow the good writing. In short, I would not be happy if my daughter brought this book home to read only to find out it leans so far in one direction that the main idea of the story is lost in the personal ideologies of the author. These things should be communicated more directly on the cover and not hidden within the lines of text.
