Defiance by Valerie Hobbs

Winner of the 2008 National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA)in the Childrens Products competition. A memorable trio of characters, each fighting for independence Eleven-year-old Toby Steiner wants to do normal things on his vacation: he wants to hike and race his bike down the hill and learn to fish out on the lake. The last thing he wants is to return to the childrens hospital where his painful cancer treatment finally ended. When Toby starts spending time with Pearl, a spunky old woman who lives on a nearby farm, and Blossom, her broken-down cow, he sees all the more reason to keep the new lump on his side a secret from his parents. From Pearl he discovers the beauty of poetry, and from Blossom he just might uncover the meaning of life. In this honest and life-affirming novel for young readers, which Suzanne Fisher Staples, author of the Newbery Honor BookShabanu,calls beautiful and gripping, an unforgettable boy learns about the importance of letting things happen on their own and listening to his heart.
