Описание

A heartbreaking and lyrical debut novel about twins who navigate first love, their Jewish identity, and opposite results from a genetic test that determines their fate—whether they inherited their mother's Huntington's disease.

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.

    This is another author that I am a fan of. Yet it has been about six books since I have read anything by this author. After reading this book I plan to not make this mistake again. Mr. O'Brien really knows how to bring a story to life. This comes from years of experience as a seasoned professional writer. While I really, thoroughly enjoyed this book, the subject matter was a little tough with the bullying. The results of this bullying felt real. Thus this is probably part of the reason why I was intrigued by reading this book. At over 500 pages this is more of a tome than a book. However it did not feel like a tome as it was a quick read. I was already half way through this book in only a short matter of time. At the half way point I put the pieces of the puzzle together, or, so I thought. I was missing one piece that was a nice twist to the story. You'll Miss Me When I'm Gone is one of the best books of 2016!

    This is an interesting young adult book where fraternal twins Adina and Tovah come to terms not only with their mother's declining health due to Huntington's Disease, an inherited and fatal condition, but with the potential that they could also develop the disease. When they turn 18, they both are tested, with different results. Their relationship had already been strained, but this diagnosis widens these rifts. This is an compelling look at family dynamics made worse with illness, both in the present and in the future.

    I received this book free from net galley and the publisher (Kensington) in exchange for an honest review. Score another one for Kevin O'Brien. I am always delighted to know another book by this author is being released and even more delighted when I receive a copy to review. Andrea has moved with her nephew Spencer and changed his last name so he wouldn't be linked to the tragedy that put him away for six years in a mental institution. They live their lives without the blemish of the past; Andrea is involved with Luke who knows nothing and while their relationship has its struggles with his troublemaking ex wife Evelyn and Luke's son, Damon, who is not happy with the arrangement, things are going pretty well for them. Until the day Damon makes a live broadcast and blows up the car with dynamite killing himself and his mother with the haunting message "you'll miss me when I'm gone". Almost instantly there's a bigger body count as one after another of the bullies Damon named in his podcast end up dead. As there are more and more dead bodies, it's unmistakably looking like spencer is responsible. Or is he? He enlists the help of Damon's only friend Tanya and another girl Bonnie in trying to figure out this mess. While I was totally on to the one aspect that I found a little predictable, I had so many loose ends that I kept trying to grasp at one scenario or another. I was definitely left guessing and my mind kept thinking of one solution or another trying to figure it all out. This one hit me a little differently than Other books I have read by Mr O'brien. They all definitely have the creep and thriller factor as did this one but I don't think I have emphasized with the characters so much as I did with this one. I was so heartbroken at Damon, the little lost boy that no one seemed to really care about and felt so much sadness for him as each day of bullying was torture and he had no safe haven to go to. Not I am not by any means condoning anything Damon did but we got a glimpse of what life is like for those people who lose control and take numerous lives. I also felt for Spencer, who was too young when tragedy and violence took hold of him. It was such a strange emotion thinking about him;Andrea's forgiveness was astronomical. I asked myself many times while reading this "would I be able to forgive? We may think we know people but when they do the unthinkable, what are we supposed to feel? And how do we know what they will do in the future? Can we ever really trust our emotions?Mr O'Brien's reads are delicious scares. Reading them, especially late at night, I can visualize the scenarios and there's that little part of me that just wants to take a peak under my bed. Thank you net galley, Kensington and Kevin O'brien for allowing me to read and review this book. I give it a solid 4 1/2.

    This book is a psychological thriller but starts out more about bullying and the horrors that some kids have to live through in dealing with it, day after day. The writing is well done and the author makes the reader really feel for these kids being picked on. Kids can be so mean and it’s really heartbreaking The psychological thriller kicks into gear and there are many things going on. People are being followed, families are being killed, and others are being harassed. There are so many twists that it’s hard to get a grip on who the murderer could be. I found myself going back and forth until the very end when the big aha moment was revealed. This was a quick book, keeping me coming back for more as I wanted to figure out the big who-did-it. Great writing and great plot. I liked the idea that it involved the bullying aspect, as that is so prevalent in today’s world. A total of 4 stars, well worth the read.

    Andrea Boyle moved from Washington, D.C. to Seattle with her seventeen-year-old nephew Spencer to escape their past. When Spencer was 11 years old, he and a friend committed a horrific crime and he spent five years incarcerated. His last name has been changed and he is starting life at a new school. Andrea falls in love and moves in with Luke, a successful playwright. Luke's son has problems. He is bullied incessantly at school and only has one friend. When Spencer tries to make friends with him, he is rebuffed. When Damon broadcasts his murder of his mother and suicide to the world, he thinks they will "Miss him when he is gone". In the podcast, he calls out several of the bullies, a teacher and the principal. Shortly after his death, the same people who harassed Damon start receiving death threats. When one of the bullies gets an anonymous text message revealing Spencer's past others find out about it. When bodies start piling up, Spencer is the first suspect, and with evidence being planted, is is obvious to both him and his aunt that he is being framed.

    This book was hard to put down. It was well written and each chapter left you wanting to just read one more. When Spencer reads Damon's journal and finds out about the bullying, it was written so realistically that I could feel the pain and fear that Damon would have been going through. The characters of Luke and Andrea had strong moments and other times, I thought they would have reacted differently. The students at the highschool scared me. If that is the way they treat one another in real life, it is amazing that there are not more murder/suicides. That was the sad side to this story.

    I did figure out who the killer was in the story, but there were so many twists and turns that it was okay. This is a thriller that you will not want to put down. My emotions were all over the place as I read this book. I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a thriller/suspenseful read, but with the subject matter of highschool age characters, maybe not to that age group.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
