Some would say Becky Gerard is a devoted mother and would do anything for her only child. Others, including her husband Carl, claim she’s obsessed and can’t stop the vicious circle of finding a cure at her daughter’s expense.
Fifteen-year-old Meghan has been in and out of hospitals with a plague of unexplained illnesses. But when the ailments take a sharp turn, clashing medical opinions begin to raise questions about the puzzling nature of Meghan’s illness. Doctors suspect Munchausen syndrome by proxy, a rare behavioral disorder where the primary caretaker seeks medical help for made-up symptoms of a child. Is this what’s going on? Or is there something even more sinister at hand?
As the Gerards grow more and more suspicious of each other and their medical team, Becky must race against time to prove her daughter has a deadly disease. But first, she must confront her darkest fears and family secrets that threaten to not only upend her once-ordered life…but to destroy it.
I received an ARC of this amazing book from ST. Martin’s Press. There was no payment involved just a book I’m exchange for my honest review.
15 yearly old Meghan was always sick. And she had been sick for years. How ever doctors could never figure out what’s wrong with her. Never giving her a diagnosis. Her mom was sure there was something wrong with her daughter and fought with doctors. Finally new hope, one doctor thought he might have found the reason Meghan was sick, his colleague believed there was more to the story and we’re set to prove all the sickness was on Meghan’s head.
What would you do to save some one you love? Would you do anything for them? Even if it risk your own freedom? Your own life?
This book was simply amazing. The best I have read this year. Is filled with twist, and a big one I wasn’t expecting. I would recommend anyone to read this book.
5 out of 5 stars
