Run It Out
by Tom Dougherty
When John receives a diary from his mom, he’s skeptical of its value at first. After all, what’s a 12-year-old boy got to write about anyway? But he sticks it out. Mom says it will help; and things really haven’t been the same since her diagnosis.
Offering a glimpse through the windows of a family battling breast cancer, Tom Dougherty’s Run It Out beautifully captures the perspective of a mother who understands the uncertainty of her future living with breast cancer and a son who does not see the nature of his mother’s fight.
