WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
Here, with unflinching honesty, McRobbie relives the pains, triumphs and, yes, awkwardness, of navigating her friendships while facing down cancer. Why is She Acting So Weird? was exactly what I was in the market for–packed with thoughtful, concrete guidance based on real experience. During a crisis, it takes a village. And sometimes that village could use instructions. Why is She Acting So Weird? is that instruction manual.

As a physician, I strive to offer my patients more than just the technical aspects of surgery and disease management. I have tried to offer care to my patients that goes beyond the disease itself. Since reading Why is She Acting So Weird?, I have changed how I view patients and value so much more the family and friend support system that is essential to healing. I have modified my approach and now encourage my patients to seek that community support.
