From the Inside Flap:

Dawn Rochelle has been through chemotherapy, a bone marrow transplnt, and the death of her best friend.  Now a sophomore in high school, she wants nothing more than finally to live a normal life and be an ordinary high school student.  The freedom other kids take for granted--taking driver's ed, going to
dances and the mall, dating--means much more to Dawn.  But no matter how long she stays in remission, Dawn fears that her battle with cancer will always be
with her.  Will her past haunt her now, when she has no time to cry?

About the Author:

Everyone loves a good cry, and no one delivers heartwrenching stories better than Lurlene McDaniel.

But there's more to her books than that. McDaniel has written over 40 novels about kids who face life-threatening illnesses, who sometimes do not survive. These are powerful, inspirational stories about courage, love, and strength in the face of overwhelming trauma. McDaniel's books touch the hearts and spirits of the teenagers and adults who read them. Her following is a devoted group of appreciative fans. McDaniel says: "These are books that challenge you and make you think."

Some readers--and their parents--have wondered why McDaniel chooses to write about sad situations. "I tell them that sometimes tragedy hits people--kids, too. They want answers. They want to know 'why.' By using novels, I show ordinary kids confronting and overcoming great odds." McDaniel's books are ultimately optimistic and life-affirming.

McDaniel began writing about young adults when her son Sean was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes at the age of 3. His illness changed the lives of everyone in her family forever. "I saw what life was like for someone who was chronically ill, and I experienced how it affected the dynamics of the family," says McDaniel. She says she found that writing about the trauma and its effects was therapeutic.

To make certain that her books are medically accurate, McDaniel conducts extensive research. She interviews health care professionals and works with appropriate medical groups and hospice organizations, as well as the Tennessee Organ Donor Services. "I study medicine and traditional grief therapy techniques to give the novels a sense of serious medical reality," she says. "I also study the Bible to instill the human element--the values and ethics often overlooked by the coldness of technology."

Growing up, McDaniel lived in different parts of the country because her father was in the Navy. Eventually her family settled in Florida. She attended the University of South Florida in Tampa, where she earned a B.A. in English. She now lives in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

In addition to her popular YA novels, McDaniel has written radio and television scripts, promotional and advertising copy, and a magazine column. She is a frequent speaker at schools, writers' conferences, and conventions.

McDaniel's books have been named to several bestseller lists, including Publishers Weekly. Three of her novels were selected by children as IRA-CBC Children's Choices: Somewhere Between Life and Death, Too Young to Die, and Goodbye Doesn't Mean Forever. Six Months to Live has been placed in a literary time capsule at the Library of Congress, to be opened in the year 2089.
