4/5 rating

Doreen Cronin's Cyclone is a fascinating story about how one fight spirals into a big mess, landing Nora's cousin in the hospital with a stroke. The author gave a lot of insight on what it's like to be in the hospital, which is different from what some TV shows portray. After reading this book, I realized that medical emergencies do not just include cancer or broken bones; in fact, there are many reasons why someone could get admitted into the hospital (for example: falling down the stairs or having heart problems). Furthermore, recovery also depends on the patient, not just medicine. I also found the struggles the protagonist, Nora experiences to be very relatable, which made me like the story even more. Overall, this story caused me to develop more respect for those working in the medical field.
