The Test

Nominated for a reader’s choice award, The Test is the illustrated novel for anyone who has ever had to wait for scary labs!

Ever had unexplainable medical symptoms, a lump, a scary mole?  The Test follows Kate Thomas through the 12 tense days she experiences after the discovery of a lump in her breast, from Day 1’s panic to Day 12 when her test results finally come in.  Travel with her through the surprisingly complicated terrain of existential angst, shaky faith in medical science, and overwhelming self-absorption (so embarrassing).  Meet the office staff member whose sole purpose in life is to prevent her from getting an appointment in the same calendar year.  Accompany her to the hospital where she practically needs a GPS just to find the Radiology Department.  All this plus illustrations!
