Natalie Miller has a perfect “career oriented” life, but after a while a “Mr. Cancer” is coming uninvited in her life. This is a time to remember all the good and the bad spots from her life, but is not a sad book. The life doesn’t have a bitter-sweet taste. The humor is sparking with every line. Is hard but you cannot lose your faith, you have to spent every moment taking the best of it. I love this book is emotional and “inspirable”…

Totally satisfying first novel! The main character Natalie Miller is very likable and she grows so much by the end of the book. Highly recommend; this author is talented.
