Publisher's Summary

The Long Cutie follows our favorite little girl, "Savvy", who continues exploring her world as only a three-year-old can, as viewed through the eyes of her father. But get this: It alternates between chapters about Savvy and chapters that tell the stories of other real life people who have Long QT Syndrome, a potentially life threatening heart condition. It's one chapter about Savvy, then a chapter about a different Long QT person, alternating back and forth through the audiobook. In between the chapters are fascinating vignettes from a Norwegian friend who tells stories about his family and their history of LQTS.

All the stories in the book are all about how each family found out that they had Long QT, how they deal with it, etc. Some of them consider themselves "special needs". Others don't. Some found out that they had Long QT by passing out and wrecking their cars! Some were misdiagnosed with epilepsy for years. Some of their stories are like reading TV medical drama. Some are like reading a comedy. All of them are true.

Think of it like Pulp Fiction without all the shooting and blood. And without the gangsters. And without the cussing. And... okay, don't think of it like Pulp Fiction. Wait, DO think of Pulp Fiction, but only in the way the stories are separate stories that are told in pieces that may or may not overlap.

You know, you'll just have to listen to it. But I think you're really going to like it!
