A poetic, moving story about a teen who must make an unimaginable choice

Mom has slowly been losing herself to MS. After traditional treatment fails, she takes bee sting therapy, administered by Lily, to alleviate her pain. Lily is trained as a veterinary assistant, so she can easily handle the treatments. What she can''t handle is what happens when the bee sting therapy fails and it becomes clear that Mom wants to die.

One beautiful spring day, Lily''s mother asks her for the most impossible thing of all--mercy. They live in Oregon, where the Death with Dignity Act allows a patient to make the decision to end their own life.

While navigating first love, friendship, and the other normal worries faced by high school sophomores, Lily also has to choose: grant Mom''s request, or cling to Mom''s fading life for all it''s worth.

From the Publisher:
While navigating first love, friendship, and other typical worries faced by high school sophomores, Lily must make an excruciating decision when her mother, who has multiple sclerosis, asks for Lily's help in ending her life.
