2022 FAPA President's Book Award: Gold: Inspirational Rudy is about to learn about life and death from the most unexpected teachers. As a driven fourth year medical student, Rudy Dell is all about numbers and school standing. But in an unexpected turn of events, he finds himself assigned to the Oncology unit of the University Pediatric Hospital. In unfamiliar territory and answering to a demanding attending physician. Unbeknownst to him, he will face a most unexpected test, as the children of the oncology unit show him he might not be quite prepared for the upcoming weeks, and maybe not quite prepared to become a doctor.
