Every few days the mail brings another book about getting cancer, fighting cancer, beating cancer, dying nobly of cancer, and although these books are sad and inspirational and thought-provoking, I feel I've already read them --- so I almost never review them. But I look forward to reviewing Terri Porter’s book. Who else has a mother who breaks up her marriage to live with her kid’s Girl Scout leader? Who else, about to go under the knife, announces: “I don’t plan to die a virgin?” Who else blesses her cancer for boosting her popularity in high school --- and then has to figure out how to live when she’s cured? When I got to the end, I wanted more. And I wondered what disease Terri could get that wouldn’t kill her --- but might give her a sequel. -- Jesse Kornbluth, editor,
