Published: Algonquin Books - September 6th, 2016

In this “un-putdown-able” adult debut from Forman (If I Stay, etc.), 43-year-old Maribeth Klein does not have time for the heart attack she is having. She has deadlines at work, four-year-old twins, and a husband who is incapable of managing any of the household chores. Nonetheless, she ends up in the hospital having a double bypass. She has no chance to recover from her ordeal; her demanding home life does not let up even as her need to convalesce becomes more serious. She takes matters into her own hands, reclaims her life in a very unpredictable way, and then tries to deal with the aftermath of her decision. At times you will sympathize with her, and at other times you question the path she has taken, but there is no question that you will not put this book down until the last satisfying page. – Terry
