More About This Book

Overview

For Taylor Black, that Friday night was like any other in her senior year in high school. A quick dip in the shower then off to see her girlfriends and boyfriend Jeff. Just another Friday night in a small Florida town until she blacked out in the shower and her mom rushed her to the emergency room and another life: one of brain scans and surgeries, chemotherapy, 60 Minutes, hospitals and hospice. Something that always happened to someone else happened to her and to her family as well.

Taylor kept a diary through her ordeal as she tried to live as normal a life as possible with brain cancer. Daydreams and Diaries details the roller-coaster ride which is cancer and how Taylor coped as a patient and grew as a person, changing from an insecure high school girl to a courageous young woman.

Her spirit attracted the cameras of CBS and the attention of Ed Bradley, who called her "amazing." Twenty seven million people saw her on 60 Minutes, but CBS couldn't tell Taylor's whole story for she was far more than a cancer patient; she was a beloved daughter, sister and friend who showed, as a noted author once wrote: "grace under pressure."

Taylor's father, Tim Black, brings a father's memories of Taylor at different points in her life, helping to complete the portrait of a remarkable young woman who was the inspiration for so many.

    Must read!

    Tim and Taylor Black do a wonderful job engaging the reader immediately in this personal story as they journey their way through Taylor discovering she has cancer at 17. Taylor is wise beyond her 17 years of age. I greatly enjoyed reading her poems and journal entries. She inspires the readers to think about what is really important in life versus getting caught up in the little things. Tim's humor had me laughing out loud and I loved seeing the dynamics of their relationship. I would recommend this book to anyone that has lost a child or had a relationship with someone that has had cancer. I had a hard time putting this book down.
