You’re So Normal, Memoir, 113,000 words, Written by Amy Dethlefsen.

Throughout Emily’s childhood, I had to manage Emily’s cancer treatments for a brain tumor that wouldn’t quit. All the while, I strived and longed just to be regular mom and have an ordinary, run-of-the-mill family like our cul-de-sac neighbors. Emily’s spirit remained unscathed, though, through all the numerous setbacks and reminded me to laugh, smile, and finally accept that we were anything but normal.
