A queen who begins a lengthy war with an army of allies by her side is also a mother who wants to explain her upcoming battle with cancer to her young children in this heartening and hopeful book. James and Simon are two young princes whose mother, the Queen, calls them into her throne room one day to explain that she is about to enter a war against a rebel force called breast cancer. She describes the changes that will be coming to the kingdom, such as the recruitment of a very specialized general who will lead the war effort, the acquisition of highly advanced weapons that target rebel forces, and the calling of allies called red and white blood cells who will police the kingdom and fight the numerous battles in her name. The Queen also explains how innocent lives might be lost, such as the cells that make her hair grow, but that the war is one that can be won. And although she might grow very tired from all the fighting, once the war is over her kingdom will be able to rebuild and move forward into a bright future with the princes by her side. Una reina que está a punto de comenzar una guerra junto a un ejército de aliados es además una madre que quiere informar a sus hijos acerca de la batalla que va a comenzar en contra del cáncer en este libro alentador lleno de esperanza. Javier y Sergio son dos príncipes jóvenes quienes son llamados al salón del trono un día porque su madre quiere explicarles que va a ir a la guerra contra fuerzas rebeldes llamadas cáncer de mama. Ella describe los cambios que ocurrirán en el reino, tales como el reclutamiento de un general sumamente especializado quien estará al mando de la guerra, la adquisición de armas sumamente avanzadas que se enfocan sobre los rebeldes y la convocación de fuerzas aliadas llamadas glóbulos rojos y blancos que vigilarán el reino y lucharán en las numerosas batallas. La reina además explica cómo es posible que se pierdan vidas inocentes, como las de las células que hacen que el cabello crezca, pero que esta guerra es una que se puede ganar. Y aunque ella tal vez se canse mucho después de tanta lucha, una vez termine la guerra su reino podrá reedificarse y echar hacia delante con los dos príncipes junto a ella.
