    Not many know this, but my father died from cancer when I was a baby. I don?t remember anything about him. All I know is what I?ve been told and what I?ve seen in family pictures. Like Tovah and Adina, who underwent a genetic test for Huntington?s disease, my brother and I ...

    ?Tomorrow , when we turn eighteen, Adi and I will take a genetic test that will tell us whether we?ve inherited our mother?s Huntington?s disease, the asteroid that knocked our family out of orbit four years ago. The black hole swallowing her up". Tova and Adina ( Adi), are ...

    4 1/2 I really enjoyed this book. It was about 2 things I don?t read about to often; The Jewish culture & Huntingtons Disease. It also was about family to the core. Even though Adi and Tov are fraternal twins they are not close anymore and barely speak. Throughout the course...

    Update on 1/2/18: YOU'LL MISS ME WHEN I'M GONE is officially out in the world today!! Update on 11/14/17: Now that advance copies are out in the world, I want to note that this book deals with heavy issues that aren't evident from the description. Adding a TW here for self-harm and...

    ?Sonatas and concertos tell stories. They make you feel every possible emotion, sometimes all within a single piece?they are joy and tragedy and fear and hate and love. They are everything I never say out loud.? There are a lot of truly lovely and meaningful quotes I could hav...

    ***Actual rating: 5/5 Tov Stars*** The thin ivory candles in the middle of the table are a third their original height. Jews are not to extinguish them; we are supposed to let them burn on their own instead. That?s what I have been taught. Tonight I lean over and blow them ou...

    Wow, this was a hard book to read, but really well written. Chronic illness and SERIOUS chronic illness is an issue that not enough books touch on, or often when they do, it?s often with a very light hand. I really appreciated the way author Rachel Lynn Solomon handled this heartbrea...

    Adina and Tovah Seigel may be twins but they were entirely different in every sense possible. The only thing that they have in common was the hate and jealousy they felt for each other. Adina is a viola prodigy who devoted her whole life in it. She took her music very seriously and ...

    This was such a haunting read. I can?t give this anything less than 5 stars because I devoured it. I read it in one day, and by the end of it I was emotionally drained. This story broke my heart over and over again. I had to take little breaks between chapters to just catch up on ...

    Oh, this was really, really good. And yeah, I'm excited to see more Jewish rep in YA that isn't Holocaust-related, but as a sister book, as a coming-of-age, as a book about teens looking to the future, as a book about examining your own worth through other's eyes, as a book about famil...

    A complex, nuanced book with a sibling story at its heart that's unlike anything I've read before. Rachel Solomon knocks it out of the park with this debut. ...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight Gah, where do I even start, friends? So a lot of you know that I have been slumping, hard. For like, many months. And no book was able to really and truly "wow" me. Well, ...

    Wow! Just wow! Can I leave my review at that? Because honestly, I don?t feel like any review I write for You?ll Miss Me When I?m Gone is going to do the book any justice. It?s such a breath-taking story, and it?s one that made me feel all the emotions. This might only be Ra...

    Before I start reviewing this book, I want to tell you that You'll Miss Me When I'm Gone by Rachel Lynn Solomon is probably my favourite book of the year. It's one of the most powerful reads of mine, it was raw, it made me feel things. It was absolutely perfect and when it comes out in...

    I read an early draft of this beautiful, haunting book as a sensitivity reader. As the member of a family battered by Huntington's Disease, I believe with all my heart that this is an important book that everyone should read. It's conversely beautiful and tragic, and not in the way...

    I'm speechless. Preorder this beautiful, haunting book, please. ...

    Edit: Dec 2 2016: This book just keeps getting better. OMG <3. *** THIS IS MY CRIT PARTNER'S AMAZING DEBUT!!!!!!!!! I have read many many drafts of this beautiful, important book. YOU'LL MISS ME WHEN I'M GONE is about two sisters, Adina (Adi) and Tovah (#TEAMTOVAH!!!), as t...

    This is the first book that I've read that had a heavy focus on the Jewish faith, practices, traditions, and language and it was wonderful! It was diverse not just in religious and cultural ways but also in the racial differences of love interests and physical illness rep (Huntington) ...

    Fraternal twins await test results to see if either has inherited Huntington Disease from their mother, who is slowly losing her battle with the illness. Tovah plans for medical school while Adina, a viola prodigy, wants to study music. When one tests positive and the other negative, t...

    5 stars Oooooh this is a really good debut, you guys. I love all the themes about family, sisterhood, friendship, love as well as the darker things that are happening (TW) like depression and life-decisions. Rachel Lynn Solomon's debut, You'll Miss Me When I'm Gone, is a heart-wr...

    This is a heavy hitter. I knew it was going to be a tough read from the synopsis but I didn?t realize how hard. This book takes some dark turns. Where I was expecting it to turn into a wholesome family bonding, coming of age, dealing with tough times and grief with loved ones, it sid...

    i love this cover so much. ...

    Content warnings: suicidal ideation, self-harm, chronic illness I barely have words for how much I adore YOU'LL MISS ME WHEN I'M GONE, but, I shall try my best. I didn't hate Adina. She might frustrate and infuriate me, embarrass and humiliate me, but I didn't hate her. I never c...

    ?You can spend lifetimes searching tragedies for reasons why.? This was such a great human story. Everything felt so real and earnest. We follow estranged twin sisters, Adina and Tovah, as their lives are changed after one of them tests positive for Huntington's Disease - the sa...

    This was fantastic. At first glance, Adina and Tovah are what critics of YA would call 'unlikeable protagonists.' But for me, that's code for 'well-developed and nuanced characters who are written unapologetically, with consideration for the full spectrum of emotions.' I loved the info...

    This was fantastic. At first glance, Adina and Tovah are what critics of YA would call 'unlikeable protagonists.' But for me, that's code for 'well-developed and nuanced characters who are written unapologetically, with consideration for the full spectrum of emotions.' I loved the info...

    Not many know this, but my father died from cancer when I was a baby. I don?t remember anything about him. All I know is what I?ve been told and what I?ve seen in family pictures. Like Tovah and Adina, who underwent a genetic test for Huntington?s disease, my brother and I ...

    ?Tomorrow , when we turn eighteen, Adi and I will take a genetic test that will tell us whether we?ve inherited our mother?s Huntington?s disease, the asteroid that knocked our family out of orbit four years ago. The black hole swallowing her up". Tova and Adina ( Adi), are ...

    4 1/2 I really enjoyed this book. It was about 2 things I don?t read about to often; The Jewish culture & Huntingtons Disease. It also was about family to the core. Even though Adi and Tov are fraternal twins they are not close anymore and barely speak. Throughout the course...

    Update on 1/2/18: YOU'LL MISS ME WHEN I'M GONE is officially out in the world today!! Update on 11/14/17: Now that advance copies are out in the world, I want to note that this book deals with heavy issues that aren't evident from the description. Adding a TW here for self-harm and...

    Wow, this was a hard book to read, but really well written. Chronic illness and SERIOUS chronic illness is an issue that not enough books touch on, or often when they do, it?s often with a very light hand. I really appreciated the way author Rachel Lynn Solomon handled this heartbrea...

    This was such a haunting read. I can?t give this anything less than 5 stars because I devoured it. I read it in one day, and by the end of it I was emotionally drained. This story broke my heart over and over again. I had to take little breaks between chapters to just catch up on ...

    Oh, this was really, really good. And yeah, I'm excited to see more Jewish rep in YA that isn't Holocaust-related, but as a sister book, as a coming-of-age, as a book about teens looking to the future, as a book about examining your own worth through other's eyes, as a book about famil...

    This was fantastic. At first glance, Adina and Tovah are what critics of YA would call 'unlikeable protagonists.' But for me, that's code for 'well-developed and nuanced characters who are written unapologetically, with consideration for the full spectrum of emotions.' I loved the info...

    Before I start reviewing this book, I want to tell you that You'll Miss Me When I'm Gone by Rachel Lynn Solomon is probably my favourite book of the year. It's one of the most powerful reads of mine, it was raw, it made me feel things. It was absolutely perfect and when it comes out in...

    ?You can spend lifetimes searching tragedies for reasons why.? This was such a great human story. Everything felt so real and earnest. We follow estranged twin sisters, Adina and Tovah, as their lives are changed after one of them tests positive for Huntington's Disease - the sa...

    This was fantastic. At first glance, Adina and Tovah are what critics of YA would call 'unlikeable protagonists.' But for me, that's code for 'well-developed and nuanced characters who are written unapologetically, with consideration for the full spectrum of emotions.' I loved the info...
