When Abigail and Adrienne's mom told them she had cancer, they were afraid. When the two sisters couldn't find any books for kids that explained what might happen to their mother and what they might expect, they decided to write one themselves. The result? A humorous, honest, hopeful account of the year their mother underwent treatment for breast cancer, delightfully illustrated with drawings by both sisters.
Abigail and Adrienne Ackermann are siblings. They continue to share their experience with other children by doing book signings and readings, participating in cancer awareness events throughout the year, and appearing on TY and in print interviews. They live in Upper Marlboro, Maryland.
