16-year-old Grace Wethor brings levity and a fresh young eye to the twists and turns of modern cancer survival through poems, art, excerpts and chapter takeovers from other survivors in this exhilarating debut book.
A lot of people tell me “you’re so lucky” after they hear my story. Well okay, first they say “OMG, I’m so sorry” and then they say “you’re so lucky.” But what is luck anyways? Would you have told me I was lucky three years ago when I was literally given a death sentence? Luck is defined as success or failure apparently brought by chance rather than through one's own actions. In other words random. But I don't think this was random...how could it be? That was when I decided to be in control of my “luck.” You are probably thinking “Grace, that’s not how it works.” But, why not? It’s your life. Make it that way.
