On 18 January 2012, Elise Schwarz received a frantic, terrified phone call from her babysitter that shook her world to its foundations: `There's something wrong with Evan. He's turning blue.' Elise was the woman who had everything: a high-flying career in law, a New York home and her beautiful son. It was the ultimate betrayal to find out that Evan was a victim of shaken baby syndrome - and the babysitter Elise had trusted was responsible. Elise, a single gay mother with the tightest of loving support networks, was forced to face down the New York DA, who obstructed her from caring for her own child and, even more horrifyingly, doctors convinced that the best thing to do was to pull Evan off life-supporting treatment before the end. Written in an intimate diary format, this is a truly moving and deeply affecting account of Elise's fight to keep the star in her life shining brightly for as long as possible. It is testament to a mother's love and, above all, an unbreakable belief in her child.
