Favorite Book of the Month: Side Effects

Winner of the blog Book of the Month award goes to Amy Koss' new book Side Effects . A fictional, realistic account about fourteen year old Izzy in LA and her diagnosis & treatment for Hodgkin's Lymphoma. I found the book very enjoyable as it related the emotions of Izzy and the reactions of those around her in a way that first-hand recollections just haven't seem to capture.

With the often candid language, I wouldn't recommend the book for those under 13 but for those 13-21 (and even older as I enjoyed it), this book is a great resource. I believe it strikes the chord knowing that one isn't alone in all of the craziness that they are going through (family, friends, and vomiting).
