Summary
On her eighteenth birthday, Cayenne learns that her long-dead mother left her and her sister a series of video messages; that their aunt, who raised them, has the same gene mutation that caused their mother's cancer; and that she and her sister may also have it.
Cayenne's mother died of breast cancer when Cayenne was four. The women in her family have a history of dying young. Figuring she'll meet the same fate, she engages in death-defying risks like dodging trains and jumping off cliffs with her boyfriend. When Cayenne receives a series of video messages her mother made for her before dying, she isn't sure she wants them. Then Aunt Tee-- who raised her-- tests positive for a BRCA gene mutation and decides to get a mastectomy to reduce her chances of developing cancer. For the first time Cayenne starts to question what it truly means to live life to the fullest, even when death might be written into her DNA. -- adapted from jacket
