Here’s our Day 48 Rosette, Ema’s Review.
“🌺 REASONABLE LIES 🌺
By T.A. Rosewood
Firstly, I’d like to say that this book is important.
Please, please, PLEASE get yourself checked.
Whether it’s your breast, testicles, thyroid, skin, prostate, or ovaries/womb. If something doesn’t feel right, go to the Dr.
Secondly, I personally struggled with this book. It has nothing to do with its content.
I found it difficult to agree or understand Jane’s ideals of why she keeps the secret of her diagnosis from her friends and family; so she lies.
The reason I found it extremely difficult is because my dad’s girlfriend has had breast cancer and hid it from her children. Had a mastectomy and a reconstruction without telling them and has only told them she has cancer because she is terminal.
Saying that I did enjoy Jane and James’s relationship. The friendship that develops through pain is a beautiful one. Similar to a friendship I made with a mother of a friend of mine when she was diagnosed.
I feel that if I didn’t have such a bad personal experience with lying around cancer, I would have rated this book 5*.
So please read it and experience the honesty and pain that Rosewood has written.
