Thanks to Allison for the recommendation and borrowed copy! I also enjoyed how real Tania Katan's voice is in this memoir of her devastating two-time diagnosis with breast cancer (once at age 21, and again at age 31). I especially liked how her retelling of her first bout with cancer in her early twenties is interspersed with later journal entries made following her second diagnosis. Deals with a serious and difficult topic, yet full of humor at the absurdities of life and surviving its challenges.
