Summary
Astrid's cancer has returned. It's an "astrocytoma," a tumor in her brain. She hears about a radical technology called cryopreservation that may allow her to have her body frozen until a future time when-- and if-- a cure is available. With her boyfriend, Mohit, and her best friend, Chloe, Astrid goes on a road trip in search of that possibility. To see if it's real. To see if it's worth it. For fear of missing out on everything. -- adapted from jacket
Summary
Despite the loving intentions of her mother and boyfriend, sixteen-year-old Astrid wants to make the decisions about her life and death when her cancer returns, including exploring the possibility of cryopreservation
