Mallory Smith’s Salt in My Soul: An Unfinished Life

The “unfinished” life of Mallory Smith is told here through her journals and the thoughts and experiences of those who shared her journey.   Mallory has Cystic Fibrosis, a cruel and life-consuming lung disease with a grim prognosis, but this fierce young woman refuses to be about her illness.   In her writings, she thoughtfully considers her condition and its consequences as she embraces life, athleticism, scholarship, youth, and all those around her.  Ultimately she battles for and endures a lung transplant, her only hope.  Recommended, and available in March from Random House / Spiegel & Grau.
