The author of this book tells her story from her heart. She was faced with a serious illness at an early age and shares her struggles with readers. By sharing her love with a family that had worse problems than her she came to realize what it meant to love and care for your neighbors. Her faith is tested and she realizes that she did not walk alone, God was with her.

This book was truly fantastic. I was surprised at how hard it was to set it down... which I didn't do for very long. I love the short chapters and thew ay Sarah weaves the stories together. My eyes were opened to the plight of refugees in America... to the plight of breast-cancer patience in general., and the ways those two stories share much in common. I loved the raw and honest approach to Sarah's writing as she shared, not just the details of her life story, but crisis of faith along the way. This is a must-read. I keep finding myself recommending it to people. And knowing that the proceeds go to helping the Somali family helps me feel like I can contribute in some way. This book is worth every penny.

I could not put this book down. I pray the proceeds will surpass all needs and bless the Invisible Girls beyond education. GOD BLESS YOU SAHARA(Sarah). I look forward to hearing you speak at my church.

Had a hard time putting this book down. The combination of the Somali family's struggles and Sarah's personal struggles kept me reading.

Sarah Thebarge has penned an amazing book about life: a life that travels from everything to nothing and crawls its way back again; life like a rheostat controlled lamp, its light slowly pushing back the darkness; life like a young dandelion daringly breaking through and beautifying a crack in a sidewalk; life that risks love through heartbreak, life from death, family from loneliness. Like most good stories, its ending remains uncertain and unwritten, but it invites you to follow it even after you close the back cover. Do yourself a favor and create space in your day, your reading schedule, and your heart for a memoir that simply asks that you allow the stories and people around you who are so often invisible to become visible.
