Dependable, Young Adult, memory, genetic disorders, terminally ill, love, friendship, dying
Sammie McCoy has a degenerative brain disorder that will eventually erase her memories and her health. To help her future self remember, Sammie keeps a candid journal. She records her first date with her long time crush, high school debate triumphs and failures, adventures with friends, complex relationships, and her ambitions of graduating from high school and going to college. Unfortunately, Sammie’s memories fade away too soon and all that is left is her memory book.
