Giveaway details will be given at the bottom of this post!
It is with my sincerest honor to be able to review such a wonderfully written story. Everything about this book is beautiful. The writing is conveyed in such a way that truly reflects the love, bond, and strength that this family has for each other. I laughed, I cried, I felt every emotion in between. I am in awe of Maddie’s strength and the strength of her entire family.
I loved reading the book…and I discovered as an added bonus that the author is a wonderful person! Him and I have been emailing back and forth about his book and he couldn’t be a nicer or more generous man. He is just as nice in real life as he appears in his book which makes me appreciate the book even more 🙂
A conversation with Scott Kramer, in his own words…
Briefly give a description of your book:
A book of life. That is exactly what awaits inside the inspirational pages of this true story.
On April 26, 2017, a loving father opened his laptop with the intent of simply keeping his family and friends updated on the condition of his two-and-a-half-year-old daughter, Maddie. Just days prior, Maddie had undergone emergency surgery to remove a rare, cancerous tumor from her spinal cord. Her battle would continue with an aggressive treatment protocol that would have been taxing on even the strongest of adults.
With Maddie as the perpetual force of positivity, her father continued to document her miraculous journey. Factual updates quickly transformed into a series of inspiring and unforgettable vignettes. Anyone following Maddie’s story began to realize that the daily doses of joy she dropped upon her loved ones were not fleeting tales of a fighting toddler. Instead, there was something deeper about Maddie. Something more profound. Something you will discover as you delve into Maddie’s story.
That Maddie – with her boundless miracles and incomparable spirit – offers unique insight into tackling any challenge life may bring our way. That Maddie – from the very beginning – was giving us all the gift of this beautiful book of life.
