From Booklist:

When 11-year-old soccer whiz Isabel is diagnosed with leukemia, her world suddenly shifts from the playing field to the hospital. It’s difficult to deal with the details of treatment, though her family, the hospital staff, and her fellow patients provide welcome support. Still, she can’t help worrying about how her best friend, who’s away at camp, will react. In a first-person narrative, Isabel records her thoughts and emotions as she goes through chemo; deals with its attendant miseries, from nausea to baldness; and comes out on the other side. Ditmars, whose son died of leukemia, provides a close-up look at cancer through the eyes of a young person. Although characters are not well developed, the story shows what a young cancer patient might endure, both physically and emotionally, between her initial diagnosis and her remission party. Though undeniably purposeful in the writing, this short first novel will serve a useful purpose for many readers. Grades 4-7. --Carolyn Phelan
