Mother/Daughter Book Club Reads Loose Threads and Raises Funds

Wicked Local Photo by Anne Kasper

Here's a shout out for the Mother/Daughter Book Club in Georgetown, MA! They held a bake sale to raise money for breast cancer awareness. In conjunction, the girls read my novel Loose Threads.

“I learned that you never know what people are going through at home,” said Michaela Perry.

The book dealt with some tough subject matter, though, such as the treatments and surgery that the grandmother goes through. For example, Shelby Cherwek said that one thing she learned from reading the book is that sometimes women have to have surgery to remove their breasts because of breast cancer.

The girls all agreed that it was a sad book....The book was set in the 1970s, and the girls said that they know that technology and treatment for breast cancer has improved a lot since then.

“You have a better chance of living now,” Michaela said.

Samantha agreed. “Try to keep hope,” she said."

Absolutely. "There's hope. Look." You can read the full article in the Georgetown Record here.
