            Like so many people her age, Harriet threw her thoughts down on a blog. However, her reasons for writing were different from her friends, and it was clear from the outset that she was a writer first and foremost. The Book of Hat captivates the reader with its facility for express...ing everything from the ordinary stuff of life to the almost unspeakable. And part of its charm for readers young and old is the author's ability to find happiness and good luck wherever she looks. This is one of the year's surprising reads: an upbeat book about living with cancer.
