Mummy, Daddy, Louise and Ruben had been going to go to Spain for their holidays. Louise and Ruben were already looking forward to it like mad. But then their mummy suddenly has to go into hospital because the doctor has discovered a lump in her breast. Then Louise catches the word “cancer” for the first time. That scares her. Wasn’t that what her best friend Becky’s grandma died of? But the adults calm her fears. Everything will be all right, we just have to be patient. And funnily enough, the holidays turn out to be really nice because Grandma comes to look after Louise, Ruben and Daddy – and Janni, an old friend of Mummy’s comes, too. And anyway, Mummy gets a little bit better every day. Soon she’ll be home again and then everything will be the same as it always was. And it is, at least to begin with.
But then Mummy has to lie down more and more often because she is so tired and one day she has to go back to hospital. The cancer is now in so many parts of her body that they can’t remove it in an operation. When none of the treatment works, Mummy goes into a special clinic where you can only visit her once a week. Now, for the first time, it occurs to Louise that Mummy might die, and Mummy promises to give Louise a sign when the time comes – so they can say goodbye. Then Mummy leaves the clinic, against Daddy’s will. She says she can be ill just as well at home. Louise and Ruben are happy and, strange as it may sound, this time, in which Mummy gradually gets more and more ill, is the best they’ve had together.
In the end Mummy has to go back to hospital but she keeps her word and gives Louise a sign. She tells her that people turn into stars when they are dead. Of course, Louise knows stars are really small planets with the sun’s rays shining on them. On the other hand, though, people still don’t know everything about the universe yet. So perhaps Mummy really is a star now, shining down on her and Ruben and Daddy, and because she’s a star, she’ll always be with them, after all? A Star Called Mummy | 10 +
