"Each section [of the book] gives a voice to young people, beginning with their experiences of cancer. It looks at the impacts of adolescent cancer on healthcare professionals, an area that is often neglected." (Nursing Standard
, March 2009)
"It was about time somebody wrote down all the things that reallymatter and all the things that people working in this highlyspecialised field really need to know. And this is it! Kelly andGibson have pulled together the most comprehensive reference bookyou could ask for. It should be prominent on the shelf of everyoneworking or training in the field of cancer care with young peopleand their families. It's all here, it's all readable and its alluseful. Fantastic!"

"Speaking as a parent this book has made very interestingreading. I wish I had had the opportunity to have read this bookwhilst my son was actually on treatment, so much makes sense and somuch is explained. It really showed what is "normal " behaviour ofa teenager with cancer and that is so reassuring to read. There aremany lines of the book that rang home as being so true. For examplethe view of the 17 year old who said that one had to 'get throughlife', not over it, getting on with life, normal life."
