Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Some side-effects of cancer treatment are pretty fabulous in magazine writer Scotch's debut novel. Natalie Miller, a driven 30-year-old senior aideto a woman senator from New York, is having a rough time: just days after she's diagnosed with breast cancer, her cheating live-in boyfriend ditches her. She's feeling gloomy, then, when she begins chemo. (Her hunky and sweet gynecologist, Zach, is a mitigating factor.) Though the election is six weeks away, Natalie is ordered to stay home, where she writes in her diary (excerpts appear throughout) and becomes addicted to The Price Is Right while an ambitious junior aide takes over her job. Natalie battles through rounds of chemo and a mastectomy until, out of the blue, an old love, up-and-coming rocker Jake, comes back to take care of her. He seems intent on making things work, but Natalie's long-simmering (and seemingly requited) attraction to Zach only intensifies. Meanwhile, Natalie's journalist friend Sally lands her first big story: an exposé of Natalie's boss. Her loyalties on the line and her cancer on the wane, Natalie makes some tough choices about the postcancer person she wants to be. Character development is secondary to the affirmative message in this bonbon of a cancer book. (May)

From Booklist

Natalie Miller is the senior aide to a senator from New York, and nothing stands in her way--not even friends and lovers. Nothing, that is, until she is diagnosed with stage III breast cancer. Her live-in boyfriend leaves, her chemo treatments nearly kill her, and her job is in jeopardy. For the first time in her life, Natalie has time on her hands, and she uses it to examine her life. What she finds is a string of relationships that ended basically because she let them. And she discovers that the senator to whom she has devoted so much is less interested in issues than in election results. And most disturbing, the love that she thought she lost was never really hers at all. Scotch handles the topic of cancer with humor and hope, never dipping into the maudlin. The ending gets a bit saccharine in places, but the changes and realizations that the characters make are profound and moving nonetheless. An impressive debut. Elizabeth Dickie
