Mitch Albom is going to have a new book and no one here except me on goodreads is hyped for it Author Mitch Albom and his wife Janine run an orphanage in Haiti, and they received a call that one of their favorite children, 5 year old Chika, had something very wrong The only MRI machine in Haiti identified a brain mass, so they brought Chika to Michigan to see if they could get treatment for her She had a rare incurable brain tumor which attacks young children, but they tried everything, including extended stays in Germany for an experimental treatment The book was very thought provoking, because I wondered how far I would go to try and save my child Would I keep seeking a cure, as they did, despite the fact that most doctors told them that it was hopeless Would I keep looking, even while the child was bedridden with a feeding tube Or would I have put her on hospice care with minimal intervention Who can say Have some tissues handy as you read this one. Thanks to HarperCollins Publishers and NetGalley for an Advance Reader Copy in exchange for my honest review.Touching tribute to Chitka, whom the author and his wife rescued from a Haitian orphanage so she could receive better medical care in the United States I loved Chitka s spirit I will think of her when things are tough I was a bit confused at times if the author was imagining Chitka s presence or if they were true memories My favorite book by this author remains Tuesdays with Morrie.
