Book Overview

Eighteen-year-old Cayenne barely remembers her mother, who died of breast cancer when Cayenne was four. The women in her family have a history of dying young. Cayenne figures she’ll meet the same fate, so she might as well enjoy life now, engaging in death-defying risks like dodging trains and jumping off cliffs with her boyfriend.

When Cayenne receives a series of video messages her mother made for her before dying, she isn’t sure she wants them. Her aunt Tee has been her true mother figure. But then Aunt Tee tests positive for a BRCA gene mutation–the one that doomed Cayenne’s mom–and decides to get a mastectomy to reduce her chances of developing cancer. As Cayenne helps her aunt prepare for the surgery, she finds herself drawn to her mother’s messages, with their musings on life, love, and perseverance. For the first time, Cayenne starts to question what it truly means to live life to the fullest, even when death might be written into her DNA.

Book Review

How To Live Life On The Edge is an inspiring and emotional story that you shouldn’t miss.

This book hit home for me, not only because I’ve lost people close to me from Breast Cancer but also because we have a family history of it that I myself an currently up against. It was so surreal to find a book that perfectly captures the mood I had at a young age towards these issues and the juxtaposition I know have in my maturity.

How To Life Life On The Edge is the true depiction of strength, power of self and acceptance.
