The book Julias Mother was basically about a lady who had worked in the emergency room.she was told by the other doctors there would be a six year old girl coming in.The girl had just been hit by a truck.When they had let her know she was in the employees lounge resting for her next shift.When the young girl was rushed in she was covered in blood.They start operating on her immediately.They were doing everything they could not giving up on her but all they had done was not good enough.Her mother was waiting terrified,anxious,and impatiently wondering what was happening to her daughter.Finally they just faced the truth that the girl was gone so all their was left was to tell her mother which was the most devastating thing you could do to someone. I feel this was a really good book.Its a good resource for people who want to be in the hospital industry.It is very interesting and makes you want to read more because you want to know whats going to happen next.I feel it brings suspense to the readers.Julias mother is a really good book and if you read it you will not be let down.Was this review helpful?
