My pick this week is...

You'll Miss Me When I'm Gone by Rachel Lynn Solomon
Eighteen-year-old twins Adina and Tovah have little in common besides their ambitious nature. Viola prodigy Adina yearns to become a soloist—and to convince her music teacher he wants her the way she wants him. Overachiever Tovah awaits her acceptance to Johns Hopkins, the first step on her path toward med school and a career as a surgeon.

But one thing could wreck their carefully planned futures: a genetic test for Huntington’s, a rare degenerative disease that slowly steals control of the body and mind. It’s turned their Israeli mother into a near stranger and fractured the sisters’ own bond in ways they’ll never admit. While Tovah finds comfort in their Jewish religion, Adina rebels against its rules.

When the results come in, one twin tests negative for Huntington’s. The other tests positive.

These opposite outcomes push them farther apart as they wrestle with guilt, betrayal, and the unexpected thrill of first love. How can they repair their relationship, and is it even worth saving?

From debut author Rachel Lynn Solomon comes a luminous, heartbreaking tale of life, death, and the fragile bond between sisters.
Books about twins always fascinate me because I've always wanted a twin and the bond between twins is one-of-a kind. This one sounds super good - I'm curious to see how the Huntington's results will effect the twins...I can't even imagine how it would feel to be in those shoes, knowing one of you would live and the other wouldn't. Also Rachel is a 2018 debut author!

You'll Miss Me When I'm Gone will be released January 2, 2018!

  1. I've kind of always wanted a twin too! My sister and I are 11 months apart so I suppose we're "Irish twins" - kind of. It's a neat bond and I wouldn't trade it for anything, as much as I think having a twin would be cool. :D Anyway, I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a fabulous week, Lauren. =)
