Meghan Weir's book is a fantastic read. Meghan chronicles her life in a pediatric residency, complete with heartwarming and sometimes heartbreaking tales about the many patients she encounters, including premie babies with heart defects, children in the heme-onc ward, and even her harrowing experiences while spending time in a sparsely-equipped hospital in Liberia. While the patient stories are haunting, what shines through the most for me are the words which she carefully and meticulously chooses to describe the interactions with her patients, parents, and coworkers. If Dr. Weir is half as good at treating patients as she is at writing, then her patients are in great hands. This book is a perfect gift for someone who is considering becoming a doctor, especially a pediatrician. It will also be enjoyed by anyone who has had a sick child. I encourage everyone to buy it, read it, and contemplate some of the larger subjects of childhood life and death that she tackles. I loved this book. I adored her writing. I hope she writes a sequel.
