We are very proud to announce that this fall we will be publishing THE YELLOW WORLD: HOW FIGHTING FOR MY LIFE TAUGHT ME HOW TO LIVE by Albert Espinosa, a sensational memoir with all the emotional power of The Fault in Our Stars.
“My heroes don’t wear red capes. They wear red bands.”
At thirteen, Espinosa was diagnosed with cancer, and he spent the next ten years in and out of hospitals, undergoing one daunting procedure after another, starting with the amputation of his left leg. After going on to lose a lung and half of his liver, he was finally declared cancer-free. Only then did he realize that the one thing sadder than dying is not knowing how to live.
In this rich and rewarding book, Espinosa takes us into what he calls “the yellow world,” a place where fear loses its meaning; where strangers become, for a moment, your greatest allies; and where the lessons you learn will nourish you for the rest of your life.
Albert’s story is the inspiration behind RED BAND SOCIETY, a FOX TV series from executive producer Steven Spielberg, premiering Wednesday, September 17.
