Publisher Description

The groundbreaking graphic memoir that inspires breast cancer patients to fight backand do so with style.

“What happens when a shoe-crazy, lipstick-obsessed, wine-swilling, pasta-slurping, fashion-fanatic, about-to-get-married big-city girl cartoonist with a fabulous life finds . . . a lump in her breast?” That’s the question that sets this powerful, funny, and poignant graphic memoir in motion. In vivid color and with a taboo-breaking sense of humor, Marisa Acocella Marchetto tells the story of her eleven-month, ultimately triumphant bout with breast cancer—from diagnosis to cure, and every challenging step in between.

Great Read, Not worth $13

It's a good book, but In my opinion it should be $10 at least since I've managed to finish it in 3 hours, people are greedy for money in business but don't know what a fair price is.
