Overview
The hardcover publication of "Sick Girl" garnered tremendous attention, generated impressive sales, andignited controversy.Both inspiringand provocative, reactions to the book ranged from inflammatory posts on a U.S. News & World Report blog, to hundreds of letters from readers, toa full-page review in "People." Amy s force, candor, and her refusal to be the thankful patient from whom weexpect undilutedgratitude for the medical treatments that have extendedher life, have put her at the center of a debate on patientrights and the omnipotent power of doctors. At twenty-four, Amy was a typical type-A law student: smart, driven, and highly competitive. With a full course loadand a budding romance, it seemed nothing could slow her down. Until her heart began to fail. Amy chronicles her harrowingmedical journey from the first misdiagnosis to her astonishing recovery, which is made all the more dramatic by the romantic bedside courtship with her future husband, and her uncompromising desire to become a mother. In her remarkable bookshe presents a patient s perspective with shocking honesty that allows the reader to live her nightmare from the insidean unforgettable experience that is both disturbing and utterly compelling."
