"In spare and lovely prose, with grace-filled humility and candor, Sirois moves beyond the pain and grief that marked the days of her internship, and explores the larger questions that resonate in all of our lives, whether or not we've been touched by cancer. What makes for a meaningful life, however brief?...How, Sirois asks ultimately, do we respond to the challenge of loving what is mortal?...(I)n the end this is not a book about children dying. It is quite wonderously a book that celebrates life, that exhorts us to understand that if we look deeply enough, we will find meaning, even joy and beauty in the most ordinary or sorrow-filled days of our fleeting lives."
