In this coming-of-age story, Madison processes profound pain in the wake of loss, while sharing her brutally honest—and often intrusive—thoughts about the universal experiences of falling in love, growing up, battling insecurity and regret, and deciphering the meaning of life.
Madison fell in love with a boy named Knox when she was a junior in college. He opened car doors for her, he brought her coffee in bed, and he called her baby. Knox and Madison talked about getting married one day and planned to move to New York together after college. Then, a year into their relationship, doctors found a tumor in Knox’s brain. After Knox underwent a craniotomy to remove the deadly cancer, he was never the same.
Madison spent two years watching as he endured monthly chemotherapies and weekly seizures until it all began to feel normal. As she furniture shopped and decorated and set up her new apartment in New York City, Knox learned to speak and use a fork again. As she interviewed for her first job, Knox fought to stay alive.
Madison Letts has written a beautiful memoir of young love and profound loss. I am grateful to Letts for letting us into this tender time in her life, we are better for bearing witness to her experience.
