Kathy describes the hats she has worn since she was a baby--winter hat, sunbonnet, Easter finery--until the year she gets cancer and chemotherapy leaves her with a new need for hats that makes her dislike them for the first time. A realistic, straightforward and upbeat picture of a child coping with cancer and surviving it. Full-color illustrations.
"Without sugarcoating the ordeal, the book is upbeat, culminating in a class party for which everyone wears a favorite hat."
Kathy has always enjoyed wearing hats. But when she turns nine, she learns that she has cancer. Kathy is scared, and she is especially angry when her chemotherapy treatments make her hair fall out. Suddenly hats aren't so much fun anymore.
