The frustrating, life-altering, sheer bloody pain-in-the-arse inconvenience of getting breast cancer at 28' laid bare. What do you do when you discover you have advanced breast cancer in your twenties? Well, after throwing more than a few (justified) tantrums, dissolving over the prospect of losing your hair and saying goodbye to your left boob, you might just blog about it. Well, you certainly do if you've a gob as big as Lisa's. The last thing Lisa had expected to cross off her 'things to do before your 30 list' was beating breast cancer, but that's what she's stuck doing. So while she had to park her life, blogging about dealing with the crap of cancer became an outlet that helped her to cope and keep friends and family updated. Lisa's raw emotion and dark humour combined to make for very compelling reading. And now, in this brilliant, brave and insightful book, Lisa tells her whole story as it really was. Whatever you face in life, whatever the curveball you've been dealt, reading this will make you laugh, cry and feel hopeful again.
