So, she went through another two and a half years of chemotherapy, this time accompanied by radiation. She is now twenty-three years old and a graduate of Duke University. Her passion is helping others cope with the ups and downs of life during and after cancer treatment. It is her goal to become a clinical psychologist and she would like to help improve the psychological care available to adolescents and young adults who have serious illnesses.

" I would definitely recommend this to anyone dealing with a difficult time or ...Reviewed in the United States on 20 December 2015
This is a phenomenal book. Clarissa tells her story in a very real and frank way, while remaining relatable to the reader. I have the privilege of knowing her personally, and because of that was really aware of the honesty from her in this book. I can very clearly hear her voice throughout the pages -- she writes as herself, without a front or "brave face." I would definitely recommend this to anyone dealing with a difficult time or loss, even if it is not directly related to cancer. I look forward to continuing to watch Clarissa work to help those with a similar journey to her own.
