A confession. I received this book as a gift. It went into my "read later" pile. It took months before I opened it. And then WHAM - at the first chapter I was hooked. I read it straight through, alternately laughing, somberly reflecting, then chastising my own laissez faire attitude to breast cancer, and then crying at the book's powerful conclusion. This book and the personal stories of each of its young authors is a powerful testament to the indiscriminate nature of breast cancer; a helpful resource to young, middle aged and older women facing their own personal battles; and to people like me who have never taken the issue seriously enough in the past. In addition, its warm, "let's deal with this with a Cappucino or Margarita" tone and its continual optimism and humor, make this a classic story of the power of friends, perseverence; discipline; and most importantly - love, understanding and support. I hope there's a Nordies - Volume II.

I bought this book because the four authors are from Kansas City and I am really glad I did! I enjoyed reading their courageous stories and it was a real eye-opener about living with cancer and the toll the treatments took on their bodies. Their stories were a real-life account of what living with cancer is like. The book was a little repetitive at times, but overall very well written. Highly recommended!

I bought this for my mom, a breast cancer survivor. I had read a bit of it before I gave it to her and really like the style, very clever and real. My mom did say she is enjoying the book but would have rather had it while she was going through her treatments. She says that it is hard to go back to that place in time be it in films, tv, or books. She is very involved in helping other women going through treatments and says that she plans to use this book to help her new friends. Best of luck to those of you out there facing this horrible cancer or have loved ones in this situation, but you are never alone and there are always angels when you least expect it.
  • Brol
Great book with emotional insight of fighters and how they deal with the big blow of life. It was easy to read in that you did not get confused or lost with the story, but it is an emotionally charged book. Prepare to choke up a bit.
  • Fordrellador
This book offers excellent insight into the cancer patient's feelings. I went through 5 years of breast cancer treatment with my best friend and this book helped me understand a lot of what my friend went through. She kept a lot to herself, always had a positive attitude toward her survival but I didn't always know what she was feeling. I highly recommend reading this book.
  • Rgia
This book is very inspiring. It is a good read for both the cancer patient and for those supporting them.
  • Modred
I read the review of this book in People magazine, and was interested enough to buy it the next day. I was not disappointed-- this a wonderful book. Not only was it an interesting and well written chronicle of 4 women's fight with breast cancer, but it was educational as well. Reading first hand accounts of how breast cancer changed the lives of young women made I could relate to made me realize it's high time I knew what a BSE (Breast Self-Examination) was!
This is a highly personal, readable recounting of the experience of these four young women with cancer. Most stories about dealing with breast cancer are geared toward women over 50 and how their lives are affected, but this story represents a different perspective. These women aren't facing menopause and retirement, they are looking forward to weddings and babies and getting their careers moving. This is a must read for young women especially.
