    Brushing Mom's Hair By Andrea Cheng Nicole Wong

    This is a simple yet beautiful book about the way a young girl deals with her mother s breast cancer It is written in a series of poems Each poem expresses what is happening at that time with her mother or else with her own emotions The reader can feel the emotions and the helplessness in the voice of them poems She handles her worries by dancing and making pottery Through these two creative outlets she can let out her frustrations and deal with not only the everyday things a girl of fifteen mus [...]

    I don t remember where I heard of this, but this story in poems depicts one girl s inner thoughts as her mother struggles with breast cancer It is frank about the mother s mastectomy and the daughter s coping mechanisms, from distracting herself with dance, to potential anorexia My only complaint is the lack of closure mom seems to be on the road to recovery, but what about the daughter Still, many girls may find themselves in this situation, and this would be a book they d identify with and rea [...]

    In a series of poignant poems, a young girl describes her feelings as she watches her mother go through chemotherapy to treat breast cancer What I found especially interesting was that she couldn t talk to her friends about it I would have liked detail about the reasons for that, although I could imagine why Nicole Wong s delicate illustrations were a perfect accompaniment to the text Nicely told, with a genuine feeling of I m all alone in experiencing this Too bad she had no family support gro [...]

    This autobiographical novel in verse is based on the author s youngest daughter s experience watching her mom go through treatment for breast cancer The beautiful verse and illustrations certainly add something to the genre of cancer books for kids The book is well done, but I wonder if its appeal will be limited to kids who are going through or have gone through this experience Still, for those kids it will be an excellent choice.

    Based on the experiences of her youngest daughter during the author s treatment for breast cancer, this deeply moving story is told through a series of connected poems Candid yet sensitive, it portrays how the young girl experiences her mother s illness The story is accompanied by delicate black and white pencil drawings on each page.

    Copyright 2009Genre PoetryThis is a great book for students to help understand what it is like for a family that is dealing with cancer This book has a happy and optimistic ending, so it is also a great book for those needing such a story Cancer affects most lives in some way these days It is nice to have books to go to that help you sort out your thoughts and feelings.

    Another free verse book Sigh This one didn t do much for me, but it might be just the thing for a middle school girl Mom gets cancer, girl is afraid and unable to talk to her friends about it The ending is hopeful, of course Mom goes back to work and her hair starts growing back These are just hard to read.

    Beautiful little book Written in verse and told from a fifteen year old daughter s point of view as her mother is treated for breast cancer Timely would be a great contribution to any library this month.

    This is a short narrative novel in free verse The character s poems express her experiences and emotions as her mother receives treatment for breast cancer Expressive language and simple sketched illustrations Based on the experiences of the author s daughter.

    A quick read The main character is based on Andrea Cheng s youngest daughter who had to watch Andrea go through her own battle with breast cancer This story is told through a series of poems that are accompanied by some lovely illustrations.

    This book is truly beautiful, it is a story of a girl with a mother going through chemotherapy This book shows the daughter s perspective on her mother s struggles And how the daughter sees her mother s triumphs It is a magnificent book, and my favorite poetry book

    Heather Colacurcio
    An extremely short novel in verse with an extraordinary heart In under 60 pages, Cheng manages to make her reader think and feel than most 300 pages novels on the same subject Beautiful and honest.

    My 11 year old Goddaughter recommended we read this together A young teen has learned her mother has cancer A spare book written in poetry leads us on her journey as her mother travels her journey.

    A short but moving story about what it s like to be a teen whose mom is diagnosed with breast cancer Certainly a good choice for anyone experiencing the same or similar circumstances I love novels in verse very effective way to write.

    Narrative told in verse about a young girl dealing with her mom s diagnosis of breast cancer Very quick read.

    Very short, but emotional novel in verse about a girl who s mother has breast cancer I enjoyed it

    Simply told, but very sweet and moving A lot of honest emotion, feeling and pain that will resonate with any reader going through something similar.

    Lovely novel in verse about a teenage girl and how she copes while her mom battles with breast cancer A small gem.

    Not sure on this one Good poems about cancer, stress, and managing through a difficult time Not sure it s a middle grade book, though.

    Good, short, aimed at younger readers than I usually read for.
