Publisher's Summary

In a coming-of-age memoir about a woman who loved being a girl and what made her finally grow up, Kelly Corrigan brilliantly explores the "middle place" between childhood and adulthood and how one woman made the leap to the other side. "The thing you need to know about me," she begins, "is that I am George Corrigan's daughter, his only daughter." Intertwining her own story with that of her larger-than-life, Irish-American father, Corrigan illustrates an unbelievably powerful and healing father-daughter relationship that evolves as they both face a battle with cancer.
Uplifting yet realistic, her story examines what it means when the person who has been your source of strength is in need of some himself. It's that bittersweet "in between" moment when you're a devoted wife and mother, but you'll always be Daddy's girl.

Very Close To Home For Me - A Good Book!

This was so real for me. Last year my fiance was diagnosed with throat cancer. It's such shock to hear the words that someone you love so much is sick and has to go through surgery hoping to hear it's non-invasive but to hear it is invasive and then going through treatments and even now a year later still going to regular check-ups and holding your breath each time. I can't imagine having cancer and having a loved one with cancer. I also grew up in Malvern, PA in the 1970's so I knew exactly the areas she was referring to and got a real chuckle when she mentioned the King of Prussia Mall and Guess Jeans! This book has a lot of emotion I thought it was very well done and hope to hear more from Kelly Corrigan in the future!
