Jamie laments the loss of her “normal” teenage life and describes feeling forgotten as her family focuses on Jordan’s medical needs. Jamie finds solace through journaling about her experience, and encourages the reader to write about his or her own journey on the pages provided in the book. Age 8 and up.
