"The book walks you through and helps ease the anxiety of the real-life events that happen during Sammy's hospital visit and beyond. The surprise kisses are a brilliant and whimsical way to portray all of Sammy's get-well wishes, thoughts and prayers. They are Sammy's reminders of how much she is loved."
