Product description


* "Maddie's first-person account is filled with humor and fun, introducing readers to a raunchy, heartwarming, and endearingly dysfunctional family. Best of all is the achingly romantic love story that unexpectedly blossoms between Maddie and a fellow shipmate and lends the story much-appreciated moments of passion and levity. A poignant and important story about compassion, love, and the decision to live life on your own terms--right up to the very last minute."―Kirkus Reviews

Filled with equal amounts of laugh- and tear-inducing moments, this debut novel will be
impossible to put down. Fans of Jenny Downham's Before I Die or Jonathan Tropper's This Is Where I Leave You will enjoy this unique story about dying on one's own terms. With its fresh, original plot and thought-provoking themes, this title will have a high teen appeal.
School Library Journal

bright, promising debut that will resonate."―Booklist

"A sweet story of a young girl growing and learning about the depths that exist in everyone...Maddie is an accessible and relatable character."―
