Totally ugly-cried at the end. A heartfelt strong novel that hit me in the feels.

A 2018-2019 Missouri Gateway Readers Award preliminary nominee (grades 9-12).

Sammie is on track to be valedictorian of her senior class and going to Nationals for debate when she learns she has Niemann-Pick Type C, a rare genetic disease that will steal her memories and ultimately kill her, but type C is rare, so they are not sure exactly how quickly it will progress. She begins a memory book to help her future self hold onto her memories.

I found this pretty predictable down to the adorably quirky siblings. Keep a tissue box handy.
