The Girl with Nine Wigs : A Memoir Paperback
Sophie is 21 when she is diagnosed with a rare, aggressive form of cancer.
A striking, fun-loving student, she finds her world reduced overnight to the sterile confines of a hospital.
But within these walls Sophie discovers a whole new world of gossiping nurses and sexy doctors, and of hair loss and eyebrow pencils. As Sophie faces the challenges of chemotherapy, wigs - now a crucial part of her life - become a powerful form of self-expression.
Each of her nine wigs makes her feel stronger and gives her a distinct personality, and that is why each has its own name: Stella, Sue, Daisy, Blondie, Platina, Uma, Pam, Lydia and Bebe.
There's a bit of Sophie in all of them, and they reveal as much as they hide.
Sophie is determined to be much more than a cancer patient.
