"The death of a child," writes Myra Bluebond-Langner, "poignantly underlines the impact of social and cultural factors on the way that we die and the way that we permit others to die." In a moving drama constructed from her observations of leukemic children, aged three to nine, in a hospital ward, she shows how the children come to know they are dying, how and why they attempt to conceal this knowledge from their parents and the medical staff, and how these adults in turn try to conceal from the children their awareness of the child's impending death.

Winner of the 1997 Charles A. Corr Award in Literature "One closes this interesting, tender book with a wish that the adults could do their jobs as well as the children do their dying."--American Journal of Psychiatry
