Diary of a Dying Girl, adapted from Salt in My Soul

This moving, heartfelt YA adaptation of Smith’s adult memoir, Salt in My Soul: An Unfinished Life, is based on diary entries Smith kept from age 16 until her death at 25 from cystic fibrosis, an often invisible disease. In middle school, she contracted Burkholderia cenocepacia (B. cepacia), a deadly bacteria known to infect those with cystic fibrosis.
