Using journals and recollection, Noes father Phil Wolfson recalls the events chronologically. His sons chemotherapy journal offers a stricken teenagers private view of illness, his wrestling with such enormous stress while striving to live within the framework of normal expectations for adolescence. The third perspective derives from the authors realization that his intimate relationship with Noe continues after death. Channeling his sons spirit, the author writes in his place, sharing with readers a near-adult view of living with illness and losing the battle to survive it.

Noe reveals the inner world of familial love and discord, Noes own remarkable coping, and the extraordinary stress Noes illness had on his younger brother. It describes the quest for emotional and spiritual support through therapy, contact with renowned alternative healers, and the use of the drug MDMA for enhancing relationships.

With poignant descriptions of an assisted dying process, Noe moves beyond a model of bereavement to offer a reminder of loves transcendence. From the Trade Paperback edition.
