Overview

What is a girl with cancer to do? Will her friends still want to hang out with her? Can she play soccer? And what about school? How will she manage homework from home and the hospital? Can she please get back to a normal life? A life with hair and without chemo?

Isabel learns that having cancer is just awful, but it can't change who she is. With the support of her friends and family, along with her courage and fabulous sense of humor, she gets through the side effects, the scariness, and the baldness of cancer and chemo.
