Library JournalThe late poet was a preteen when surgeons removed a Ewing’s sarcoma from her jaw, leaving her face disfigured. Passing through stages of disbelief, fantasy, anger, and depression, she suffered 30 surgeries before accepting that she would never be seen as normal by others. Her memoir questions how society’s demand for physical beauty harms young women. (LJ 7/94)
