A witty and unexpected novel about a woman trying to keep her family vacation--and yes, her life--from going south by the Amazon Charts bestselling author of Life and Other Near-Death Experiences.

It's been thirteen years since doctors declared Libby Ross-Velasquez a goner. Yet here she is--cancer free. So why doesn't she feel more alive?

Sure, Libby's husband, Shiloh, has been distant. One of their daughters has a serious health condition. And her father's death hovers over Libby like a rain cloud. Still, this eternal optimist knows she's the winner of the existential lottery.

But when her forced cheer isn't enough to keep her family from catching her blahs, she decides to fly them all to Vieques. The Puerto Rican island is where she and Shiloh fell in love--and where she decided to fight for her life after her cancer diagnosis. Where better to put their problems into perspective?

Then a tropical storm strikes. Libby pretends everything's fine, even as she fears she's doomed her family. What she can't see is that the worst disaster they've faced may be the best thing that ever happened to them. But first, they have to get through it.
