"Don’t think for one minute that this book is full of heavy, tearful drama. The author approaches Millie’s dilemma with humor, including some moments of madcap hilarity. This book is an inspirational tribute to the brave women who have taken control of their own destiny by taking a preemptive strike against cancer." -InD'tale Magazine
From a very young age, Millie Dwyer knew that her life would be short. After all, cancer claimed both her grandmother and mother. Surely she too would follow in those footsteps, her genetic destiny giving her the ultimate middle finger.
Turns out the joke was on her. Sure Millie has the same genetic mutation that makes the Big C almost a given, but now there are scientific advances to detect it—and surgeries to prevent it. Now Millie has to figure out a plan for life she never planned on having. It also probably means she should stop dating losers who dump her the minute she gets out of surgery.
Navigating the dating scene before had been treacherous, but at least nothing was riding on it back then. Now, for the first time in her life, Milie is actually in the market for a life partner, but who would want a 29-year-old with a body riddled with scars? Millie has a lot to learn before she can find love, and it starts with loving herself.
