Page 56:

Becky remembered those horrible chemotherapy sessions: how they made her vomit up her entire insides, how they made her feel like jelly, how she sometimes couldn't get out of bed the whole day.


  1. Hmm, not the most pleasant thought but it sounds like she no longer needs the treatments. I love the cover on this book.

  2. Certainly chemo is not pleasant, but this does make me curious about the rest of her journey. And the cover is really beautiful!

    Here's mine:

  3. Sounds like an interesting read.

  4. Oh, I love that cover, and the excerpt tells us more than enough to know that this woman is facing challenges.

  5. So sad... yet, a courageous heart. Good one and I love the cover, too! :)

  6. oh sad. i can relate from the perspective of an observer as i know a couple people battling cancer. ugh.
    i just read the description of the book and it is interesting to see that it's a fantasy story!

  7. Sounds like a powerful book!
    Hope your enjoying it.
    Natalie :0) TGIF!

  8. I hope she doesn't have to go through it again.

  9. Hi Freda,

  10. That sounds depressing...Makes me wonder if the situation gets better...

  11. Nasty feeling...but good that she's "remembering" the treatments. Hopefully they're all over.

    Happy Friday!

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
