*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review. Trigger warning for leukemia.

In this graphic biography in a narrative format, Catherine is diagnosed with acute leukemia and follows a course of intense treatments and testing; putting her body through hell in order to fight the disease.

This is very detailed when it comes to exactly what acute leukemia is, what the treatments are, and how it affects Catherine’s body. While the technical parts feel laggy, the clean expressive art style is perfect as it shows the side effects and full range of emotions Catherine goes through. She handles it all with real positivity, humor, and wit. Highly recommended but it’s an emotional read. 4.9 out of 5.
