Erin Bailey's life changes forever the day her mom is diagnosed with breast cancer. It's always just been Erin and Mom, so living without her is not an option. Life takes another turn when the cancer is linked to a rare genetic mutation, and Erin must grapple with the decision of whether or not to have her own DNA tested. Her only outlets are flying lessons, where looking to the horizon calms her deepest fears, and her new friend Ashley, a girl she met in an online support group. But when a flash decision has Erin flying away to find her new friend, she embarks on a journey from the depths of despair to new love and a better understanding of the true meaning of beauty.

This thought-provoking story brings readers to the emotional brink and back again, as they experience Erin's fear, her frustration, and ultimately . . . her freedom.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 8 Up—Hit with the news of her beloved mother's cancer diagnosis, Erin is further rocked by the discovery that she may be at risk for a similar struggle. As she comes to terms with her new normal, the decisions she makes have great implications in her formerly quiet life. This novel suffers from a dizzying array of typical YA tropes. There is a spunky best friend, a "mean girl" with a difficult backstory revealed in the end, a tight-knit relationship with a single mom, grief-fueled poor decision-making, and a surprising love interest. The last of these is the weakest part of the book overall, as Erin displays a large amount of agency and personality and the romantic lead's most interesting facet is that he initially catfishes her. The teen's behavior occasionally skirts the line of plausibility, but readers will be sympathetic to her extreme emotional conflict. The subject matter transcends the typical "cancer novel" material by including conflict over testing for the BRCA gene but still goes for the emotional jugular throughout. The novel has its flaws, but will be highly appealing to teens who would be interested in a more modern take on a well-trod genre.—Erinn Black Salge, Saint Peter's Prep, Jersey City, NJ
