Thirteen-year-old Sarah Morrow doesn't think much of the fact that her mother winced a little when she hugged her. In fact, that first small indication of something wrong escapes the whole family. Three weeks later though there can be no escape. Sarah's mother has been diagnosed with incurable cancer and the love this family shares becomes a desperate clinging. But Sarah's mother has a gift. A gift for reaffirming life. And even as she leaves that gift, another one, a letter, will help bring Sarah through the most painful and trying time she has ever had. One of the most honest portraits of death, courage, and, most especially, love can now be shared again with a new generation of children. qHermes, author of this . . . uncompromisingly candid story makes the reader aware of life's priceless moments and the need for courage.q -Publishers Weekly qA vivid, painful believability.q -The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books qA sensitive, touching account.q -Instructor Magazine qThis book is by far the best liked book in my reading class.
