BOOKS


Seventeen-year-old Rose Levenson has a decision to make: Does she want to know how she’s going to die? Because when Rose turns eighteen, she can take the test that will tell her if she carries the genetic mutation for Huntington’s disease, the degenerative condition that is slowly killing her mother.

"A page-turning portrayal of living at risk for Huntington's disease, rich with the complex layers of tormented indecision that come with genetic screening. Would you want to know? A great read."  -Lisa Genova, New York Times bestselling author of STILL ALICE and INSIDE THE O'BRIENS
