Outshine: An Ovarian Cancer Memoir by Karen Ingalls looks at her personal experience with cancer. No person will react to a traumatic event exactly as another dealing with the same problem. I find every individual's story of strength and courage inspiring. Ms. Ingalls gave a valid account of her fears and worries and positive steps she followed to keep her chin up. She was also brave enough to show her weaknesses, vulnerabilities, and flaws of character at the same time. Outshine was a good read with a myriad of emotions.
