Why I Wore Lipstick to My Mastectomy : This totally charming, hilarious memoir will give women, especially young women, a model of how to proceed even when they're scared to death. Having finished journalism school and landed her dream job at age twenty-seven, the last thing Geralyn Lucas expects to hear is a breast cancer diagnosis. And there is one part of the diagnosis no one will discuss with her: what it means to be a young woman with cancer in a beauty-obsessed culture. Trying to find herself while losing her vibrancy and her looks, Geralyn embarks on a path to self-acceptance that will inspire both young women for whom virtually nothing has been written on the subject of breast cancer and anyone struggling with questions of self-image, illness and sexuality. Though her book is explicitly about a time during which she was driven by fear and uncertainty about the future, Geralyn managed a transformation that will encourage all women to discover their own courage and inner beauty.
