While running at the gym one day, Jessica suffers a burst brain aneurysm and her life takes an extremely unexpected turn. This book chronicles her health ups and downs as she faces multiple surgeries and physical set backs. As she begins to mentally, emotionally and physically recover she uses food as a way to connect with others, measure her progress and as a source of comfort during her recovery journey. She started her blog, Sweet Amandine, to connect with others and not be defined by her condition. We so loved having her in the store to chat in person about her incredible story.
