5.0 out of 5 stars Story of sisterhood.
Reviewed in the United States on 28 April 2019
“We are a doomed family—but we are not done fighting yet. One thing is certain: before I go, I am going to make a hell of a lot of noise.”

At the heart of it, this is a book about finding back your sister, even when she hurt you, even when you hurt her.

In this deep-felt story, one of the twin sisters is tested positive on a Huntington’s disease, a rare degenerative disorder, and one is tested negative. Rachel Lynn Solomon strings in the pains and traumas what means to live life with certainty and what it can mean to live in the absence of it.

What does one do when she knows she is doomed, one way or the other, and is there salvation in that painful certainty. Can a person choose to live decently when she realizes life hasn’t been fair to her from the very beginning?

Through the story of Tovah and Adina, the writer answers some of the aforementioned questions, with dramatic ups and downs.

Adina is a complex three-dimensional character. She isn’t a pitch-perfect person, but her struggles bring the reader to question their own moral compass. She is so real.

The story of losing and finding a sister, one of the closest relationships, depicts what truly matters when time is ticking.

My favorite lines from the book:

· Textbooks and exams don’t have emotions. They’re much safer.

· I’ve spent my entire life feeling different because I speak another language, because I don’t celebrate the same holidays as most people, because I don’t call my parents Mom and Dad.

· The piece is so beautiful, I ache right alone with it. It is hopeful, then hopeless, then flitting between the two as thought it cannot make up its mind. (Lovely lines.)

· As a kid, I couldn’t stand it when people said “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays.” It’s easy to be inclusive, and yet most people just don’t care.

· What is it about bad movies that make them so much better than good movies?

· I spent the next few years consumed by Holocaust literature. Consumed by trying to find a why somewhere in all that history, heartbroken when I couldn’t. You can spend lifetimes searching tragedies for reasons why.
