Praise for Mama's Knight: A Cancer Story of Love
"I have never seen anything like this in my many years of caring for women, and mothers with cancer. This book provides an amazing, and much needed, tool for families with young children who are facing the challenges of cancer and cancer treatment together. I cannot wait to share this with my patients. This book is a wonderful gift."
—Amy McNally, MD, gynecological oncology
"A cancer diagnosis affects the entire family, and discussing it with young children can be difficult in so many ways. Mama's Knight is a delightful, interactive story that will help parents approach this difficult journey in a way that protects their child's emotional health and strengthens their bond along the way."
--David Quale, MD, pediatrician
“Being a mom can be hard. Being a mom when you have cancer can be more than hard. This book, with its cute drawings and easy-to-understand story, helps break down any barriers to explaining cancer to a child.”
- Tyson Cluever, mama fighting brain cancer

Not only does Lauren do a fantastic job of organizing the tour and communicating with you at every step of the way, but I found the tour hosts that signed up for her tour to be of a higher caliber. The reviews that I got on this tour were thoughtful and well-written and I noticed an uptick in sales during this tour. I also appreciated the fact that many of her tour hosts that wrote reviews posted them on multiple sites, not just on their blog or Instagram account. This is invaluable to an author. I highly recommend Lauren and iReads Book Tours. - Allyson Rice, author of The Key to Circus-Mom Highway
Lauren Carr's iReads Book Tour is amazing! She gets real results. Not only did I get thousands of new eyes on my series, but I grew my following on all social media channels as well. Lauren has a dedicated group of reviewers and bloggers who are competent and reliable - no more wasted ARCs mailed out with no results.
