    1. Raw, honest, heartfeltJennie Nash bares it all-her soul and body-in this very honest cancer memoir. I hadn't realized the layers of grief and myriad thoughts running through someone's heart when they're in the throes of cancer. Nash is no-holds-barrred, which makes her book both fresh and necessary.

    2. In the UK one person every 10 minutes is diagnosed with b reast cancer, there is no doubt that most of us will be affected by this disease one way or another. Personally, our friends, our family, our work colleagues - somebody that we know will be, or has been diagnosed with this vicious disease . So, the fact is that b reast cancer is a common disease, but the truth is, once it is diagnosed it becomes a personal disease, and everybody deals with it in a different way. Every single patient will [...]

    3. An office in my building was moving out and this was left in their pile of papers/trash to be thrown out and I rescued it. I understand now why it was in the trash. I really do not understand why this book is rated so high on this website. Just because it's about a cancer survivor does not make it good writing. Perhaps someone can get something out of this book, but I personally cannot stand authors who come across as selfish and whiny. Her best friend has a very bad form of cancer and yet Nash [...]

    4. I did really find this book eye opening and I found the main character to be very honest and open with how she felt during her experience with cancer. I particularly liked when she spoke about wearing the red dress to her event and how that made her feel confident and come to terms more with what was about to happen to her. Overall though the book was really interesting. The author did a great job at getting the reader to almost understand and feel exactly what she was going through during her e [...]

    5. This is a poignant story of the author's battle with breast cancer intermingled with the story of a close friend of hers, who did not make it. She is a young mother with young children. This book is a vivid reminder life doesn't always go as planned, but we continue on the best we can. She's a strong example of using your circumstances to help others. Additionally, she's an example to always move forward, but not forget. To be true to yourself and to live life. It's excellent reading. Have your [...]

    6. Its an interesting look at one woman's story about breast cancer and various different things that happened along her road. She was lucky that she was caught early (due to a series of co-incidences and her own stubbornness). It's quite a short book and quite an heartwarming story of her life while fighting cancer. Not as detailed a read as others but she didn't have to go through Chemotherapy or Radiotherapy so her journey was a lot shorter than others but a lot of it reflected my own journey.

    7. This book is amazing. It is for those who are newly diagnosed with cancer, have had cancer, have known others who have died of cancer particular, breast cancer. It is inspirational and at times, brutally honest. This book shows the kindness of humanity, and all the honorable people involved who are helping to fight in the war against breast cancer. I really enjoyed reading this book in one day!

    8. Her story is different than mine, yet somehow the same. I'm guessing it is that way with all women who have dealt with, are dealing with or will deal with breast cancer. If you are one of the first two groups, I would highly recommend it. If you are in the third group but you don't know that you are in the third group, I'd also recommend reading it. You probably know someone who is dealing with breast cancer, so it would be a good read for you also.

    9. It feels wrong to say there's nothing special about this story. It's just another story of another woman's fight with breast cancer. But it's healing to read any story of surviving cancer, no matter how typical. It's a quick read and recommended for anyone needing to hear they're not alone in their battle.

    10. I picked this up at my local cancer center. If your looking the book that tells that everything will be perfect if you just believe enough, this is not the book for you. Although older, the book still relevant information. This is a realistic view of cancer. People get very sick. People die. But there is hope, and useful coping skills for any chronic illness.

    11. This is a very moving account of one woman's ordeal with breast cancer. I read it in only a matter of hours; I was impressed with not only her courage and strength, but with the humor with which she dealt with cancer.Whether you have cancer, know someone who does, or simply are interested in finding a cure, this is a great read on the subject.

    12. Very quick read as it is only 156 pages. It is one woman's account of her having breast cancer. I found realtable to a point as things work a little different in Canada, but it is a very real story with all of the ups and downs. Any book where the woman does not die of breast cancer is a vote to read for me.

    13. What a great story! I've never had breast cancer but people close to me have and it is hard to deal with for anyone, even the caregivers. Any cancer is hard and the best thing you can do is try and stay strong, don't let it get you down as hard as it is. This was a great story about Jennie's struggles with being diagnosed and dealing with the mastectomy and effects there after. Stay strong!

    14. I got this book since my mom is going through chemo for breast cancer at this time. It is helpful to hear about others' experiences to put a frame around this. I will pass it on to her. Some positive messages.

    15. Very honest account of a cancer survivor addressing all the crazy scary and even funny issues that arise when facing this situation. I enjoy Nash's style of writing. Smart and conversational, realving to Dawn
