Rules for 50-50 Chances

Review From User :

Rules for 50/50 Chances is one of the most heart wrenching books I have read this year. I have read some real heart wrenches but this book hit home because of what the book was about. I am not sure if you have ever heard of the Disease Huntington's but here is the definition a hereditary disease marked by degeneration of the brain cells and causing chorea and progressive dementia. In essence your body starts to shut down and you lose your mind. So when I was reading this book I cried because it brought up memories of a friend of mine who died from this disease.

Rose knows that she may have a disease that will kill her. She has a 50/50 chance because her mother has it and she is slowly dying. When she turns 18 years old she can take the test to learn if she will have the disease or not. All Rose wants is to go to Ballet school and have love but at the same time she knows that she could have a killer gene slowly killing her.

What should she do Take the test and find out if she is a walking dead girl or should she not take the test and go to Ballet school and live a normal life until she gets sick and finds out she has the disease What would you do in her shoes
