This book was truly amazing, and it had me crying halfway into the book and throughout.

I can see why this book is on the Mark Twain List for 2019. Reading a book from the perspective of a girl who has overcome leukemia will be new to many middle grade readers. Norah's voice is authentic and reveals the inner turmoil of returning to school after two years in treatment-- and to middle school, no less. Her parents are also divorced which adds an additional layer of empathy to be gained for those who read this book. A favorite theme of mine -- Greek myths -- is an integral piece of the plot and helps pull the story together nicely.
