Rosie, mid-30s, two kids, married to a farmer, discovers a lump in her breast. The things that happen then-chemo, mastectomy, radiotherapy-are narrated with gripping immediacy. She is an ordinary woman, not coping particularly well, but not a disaster either. Her story is refracted in the commentary of her 11-year-old daughter, caught up with her friends, her bothersome younger brother and, above all, the onset of puberty and the protracted absence of longed-for breasts.
