Petite Series: Between Two Kingdoms by Suleika Jaouad

SUMMARY: Jaouad, who learned she had cancer in her early twenties, writes about her valiant and life-changing fight against it, and the healing process of her road trip across the United States afterwards.

QUOTABLE: "I'm interested in how people who are broken by life events are pushed to enter a place where the answers lie beyond our rational and emotional capacities." (Rich, a psychologist, p. 303)

RATING: Recommend

See: An American Symphony, documentary (Netflix) about Jaouad and her husband, the musician Jon Batiste, navigating Jaouad's cancer recurrence after ten years in remission, at the same time Batiste is winning multiple Grammy awards for his music.
