I Hate Piñatas was the 2015 Independent Publisher Book Awards' Gold Medalist - Best Adult Non-Fiction E-Book and was given an Honorable Mention in the 2015 San Francisco Book Festival as well as 2015 Indie Excellence Awards' Finalist - Memoir.
Heart surgery doesn't happen in a vacuum. This is what Heather Maloy learned first-hand when her son, Colman, was diagnosed in utero with a combination of congenital heart defects which are fatal without surgical intervention. I Hate Piñatas is a compelling story of hope and strength that vacillates between heartbreaking and outrageously funny as Maloy takes you through what three heart surgeries in three years looked like for one family.
Author's Note: I Hate Piñatas is not an inspirational book, but rather a true and honest account of what we went through as a family. In my quest to keep it real, there are curse words contained within the story. However, it's my hope that this book will leave you feeling inspired.
