Gut Feelings, by C. G. Moore.
 
The name tag
Hangs around my wrist
Clamping my fate —
A constant reminder of
What I have been through,
What I am going through,
What I will go through.
 
This is the story of Chris, what happened to him at the age of eleven and how that would change the rest of his life. Based on personal experience, Chris Moore’s Gut Feelings is a life-affirming and powerful coming of age verse novel that shines a light on chronic illness, who we are and how we live. Chris’s condition – familial adenomatous polyposis, an inherited disorder characterised by the rapid growth of small, precancerous polyps in the large intestines – would come to define all aspects of his future, from his everyday life to his personal relationships. Gut Feelings is Chris’s brave story of how he attempted to come to terms with this devastating diagnosis as a teenager.
