This book by Jacquie Moore is about the daughter she had with Muppeteer Jerry Nelson. Their daughter, Christine, had cystic fibrosis, and due to her health, Jerry used to have to take a lot of time off from "The Muppet Show" to spend time with his daughter. The two of them had cameo roles together in The Great Muppet Caper, and Jim Henson even gave Christine a speaking part so she could become part of the actors' union. Tragically, Christine died in 1982 at age 21, although she exceeded the average life expectancy for someone of that time with CF, which was 15 years. Still, it's very sad what happened to her. Even so, I'd like to read this book.
