Beth | 3 comments I read this book in the late 1970s and it was about a teenage boy who was diagnosed with Leukemia but continues playing table tennis and wins some championship. If my memory is correct, because of fatigue he had to play doubles and I don't think very many people he was playing with knew he was sick. The book seemed fairly recent, took place in the US (California?), written in English, it was a paperback. I can't remember much more but I now have a teenage son who is obsessed with table tennis and I would love to find the book to share with him.

Ayshe | 4132 comments Yes, if you click on it, it'll take you to the goodreads record of the book, the author is his mother Owenita Sanderlin (the words apparently are taken from his diary).
