Sugar Crash

I’m sitting here celebrating how successful my launch of Finding Emma has been when I realized there was another reason to celebrate. And trust me when I say that despite the title – I fully plan on celebrating with chocolate :)

Below is the info for Sugar Crash – but here’s why I recommend this book:

Diabetes is a disease that is growing at an ever alarming rate. The author – Elena Aitken – has managed to bring this disease to the forefront of her story and make it real. Everyone I know “knows” someone with diabetes. But not everyone knows how to handle it.

Do you know someone with Diabetes? Has this disease affected you in any way? Let me know in the comments below and you could win a copy of this book! Or better yet – why not buy a copy and then if you win – you can gift this to someone you think should read it :) Win/Win – and proceeds go to the Diabetes Foundation!

Asking for help is the hardest part.

Darci Thompson has spent the last six years trying to hold everything together. Between raising 12-year-old Taylor and managing the local health food store, Darci’s done it all on her own. But when Taylor ends up in the hospital, her diagnosis of Type I Diabetes sends their carefully constructed life into a tailspin.

For the sake of her daughter, Darci must face a whole new set of circumstances and push past her self imposed walls to prove that Diabetes won’t define them. With the help of new friends and a man who believes in her, Darci must find the strength to challenge the stereotypes and make a difference. But is she willing to face her own obstacles and risk being vulnerable once again?

~Inspired by real life events!~

**Portions of the proceeds will be donated to the Canadian Diabetes Association**

    Wonderful that the proceeds go to the Diabetes Association…I was recently diagnosed with a mild case of Type II, but I think it’s kinda like being “a little bit pregnant…,” either you are or you’re not.

    Looking forward to reading this one, too…

    My daughter’s husband was diagnosed when he was 2. It’s been a real learning experience for her. Just last night she told me a story about Jon “going low” and for the first time their oldest son, Aiden made a comment that shows he understands. It’s a learning process for everyone.
