"Cancer Time Bomb is anything but depressing...the book offers an intimate, messy and at times hilarious family portrait."
--J Weekly, San Francisco
"A brave story."
"No matter how angry, bitter, profane, hopeful and crazy-brave her book reveals the (author) to be, Burnette never reneges on her promise to tell the truth..."
--Press Democrat, Santa Rosa"Cancer Time Bomb is just as frank as its title implies...the themes of anxiety, courage and family are universal."
