    "It is really hard to give an answer to this question. Plus the topic is not clear, it is referring to book that describe the patience view on the cystic fibrosis and their life story or it is referring to a book that is informative and describes the illness from a medical point of view?"

    "Cystic fibrosis is not something worthy of a memoir. It is not an accomplishment. It doesn't make a person interesting. It just means that someone will have a sad, shortened life."

    "My Heroes Ask Wallflowers to Dance is forever on my 10 Favorite Books of all Time list. When a parent has to deal with children who have life altering diseases, she can either stand up to the challenge or fall apart. I was happy to read Sattley's version of her not falling apart. I highly recommend this even for people without a disease in their lives, because it shows you how to really prioritize what is important."
