Author:  Peter Vu

Despite the ever-growing tumour in his head, Adam just wishes he was normal. This is until his latest operation, when everything seems like a lost hope, and he knows he isn’t normal. He doesn’t know what to do, because there is nothing he can do.  All he feels he has left are his friends. But that may be all he needs.

In a time where we too often hear about young people with illnesses on the news and Internet, this story shows what it can be like from the patient’s point of view. Putting a twist on the theme of cancer in books, readers can understand what it’s really like to stay in a hospital. This has shown to interest people who especially work in the medical field, young and old, so they can see what patients really think and feel. Written by a young author, the story and characters will feel more relatable and authentic to YA readers.
