Elisha Cooper spends his mornings creating children's books and his afternoons playing with his two daughters. But when he discovers a lump in five-year-old Zo?'s midsection as she sits on his lap at a Chicago Cubs game, everything changes. Surgery, sleepless nights, months of treatment, a drumbeat of worry. Even as the family moves to New York and Zo? starts kindergarten, they must navigate a new normal: school and soccer and hot chocolate at the local caf?, inter?rupted by visits to the hospital. Elisha and his wife help their daughters maintain a sense of stability and joy in their family life. And he tries to understand this new world--how it changes art and language and laughter--as he holds on to the protective love he feels for his child. With the observant eye of an artist and a remarkable sense of humor, Cooper captures this emotional journey back to health.
