Trudy Krisher wrote this book after her daughter Kathy was diagnosed with cancer aged nine.
In the book, Kathy herself describes the hats she has worn since she was a baby - from the first ribbon her mother put in her hair to her purple swim cap. Then Kathy discovers she has cancer and chemotherapy leaves her with a new need for hats that makes her dislike them for the first time.
This book is a realistic, straightforward and upbeat story of a child coping with cancer and surviving it. It's directed towards children without talking down to them and celebrates the special courage that lives in the hearts of all young cancer patients.
