The Best Medicine by Christine Hamill is a courageous book that addresses the difficult subject of the effects of a mother’s illness on her teenage boy.
Hard to imagine, but the tone of this romp is hilarious
Philip Wright’s school escapades, his infatuation with school mate, the Goddess Lucy, his confrontations with school bully, the Yeti, his broken specs and hapless adventures will endear him to you.
You will be strongly rooting for him and his Mum as they engage with the Big C.
Proverbial as the saying goes…….It will make you laugh and it will make you cry.
The writer is also the author of B is for Breast Cancer … and she has drawn on her own personal life story to create these memorable characters.
A powerful read and an empowering one- for adults and teens.
