Alex the Life of a Child is a touching true story of a girl with cystic fibrosis. The author, her father tells of many things her family did with her in her short life of eight years. She had to have special therapy and take medicine when she ate. She spent a lot of time in the hospital, but all the while she was happy. This was a great story that brought out many different emotions. I thoroughly recommend it.
