It would be misleading to say that this book is uplifting as, unfortunately, Kate Carr died as this book was published. This adds additional poignancy to her fears about not being around to see her children grow up. However, what this book gives you is something to relate to from your hair falling out in your hands to insesitive coments from well meaning friends and colleagues.
If Kate Carr wanted to leave any kind of legacy, then this book and it's unflinching honesty is one she should be proud to leave behind for all the women who are diagnosed with and treated for breast cancer who are sick and tired of reading about so-called inspiring and heroic battles against cancer. As the tiltle says, it's not like that, actually.
