So you’ve heard the diagnosis, you’re terrified, sad, and worried. “My Parent Has Cancer and It Really Sucks” can help you cope.
Father-daughter authors Marc Silver & Maya Silver have both watched a loved one battle cancer, so they’re very qualified to offer a solid POV. They do it along with words of wisdom from other teens, clergymen, doctors and therapists and, for further help, they include a chapter for parents of their teen readers. I tried, but I couldn’t think of one cancer-related thing that Silver & Silver didn’t cover.
While it’s meant for 12-to-17-year-olds, I think this book will work for newly-coping college-age kids, too. It’s something you hope you’ll never need — but if you do, “My Parent Has Cancer and It Really Sucks”… definitely doesn’t.
