The book

“A hook in the middle of the sky”

It was her dream and now it has come true. She loved writing and she had plenty of talent. This was demonstrated in 2009 when she had won the secondary school section of the first edition of the Literary Competition “Park Tales”.
 Giulia wrote about her experience of coping with her illness with the idea of writing a book that could be a gift: she wanted to give testimony of that “hook in the middle of the sky” that she had found and that accompanied her on her radiant journey.
 Now this desire of hers has truly become a gift for everyone. Published by the Pauline Publishing House, “A hook in the middle of the sky” came out in conjunction with the World Day of the Sick, on 11th February 2012, the anniversary of the apparition of Mary in Lourdes.
 The proceeds from the book’s copyright will be partly allocated to AIRC, the Italian Association for Cancer Research, and partly to support solidarity projects in favour of sick young people and children.
 We invite you to read this testimony, in the hope that it will support each of us on our journey, especially those who, suffering in body or spirit, seek for their life “a hook in the middle of the sky”
