SF Book Review on Serena Tejpar’s “You Are So Much More”

You Are So Much More: An Inspiration for Children Healing from Trauma or Injury follows the tumultuous journey of a young girl who is struggling with her chronic illness. While other children her age are playing outside, going to school, and experiencing the freedom of youth, she must stay in hospital to receive treatment. Since her condition is not mentioned, the story should be easily relatable for any child struggling with any serious ailment. The author acknowledges how scary it can be to live with a serious condition, but also offers hope and encouragement for young survivors.

It is refreshing to see a children’s book that tackles this sensitive subject with a perfect combination positivity and realism. This story is equally important for healthy children to hear. Even though they may not be able to relate to the main character presently, they will gain a better understanding of the daily struggles that plague individuals who are battling illness. The emotions portrayed will help children build empathy toward sick individuals, while also showing how brave one must be to withstand all these challenges. The author provides resources after the story to assist adults who are caring for a child with a chronic illness.
