This is a biography of Dr. Audrey Evans, a pediatrician who has been called a medical pioneer for discoveries that improve treatment for children with a form of cancer called neuroblastoma. She is also credited with making hospitals less frightening for children and with coming up with the idea for Ronald McDonald houses to provide families with an affordable place to stay when their children are hospitalized. In "retirement" she co-founded a faith-based middle school in inner city Philadelphia.The book includes entertaining stories about her childhood as well as information about her medical career and hobbies. In a review, a teacher wrote, "The book is more than a platform for encouraging ambitious career goals. It includes references to history and geography, instances which demonstrate character development, and nuggets of wisdom about the value of caring for others. In its pages readers will find compelling lessons about growing up to live a meaningful life."
