Things I will never forget - my name, my made-up birthday. The dark of the Hospital at night. My mothers face, when she was young. Things other people will forget - where they come from, how old they are, the faces of the people they love. The right words for bowl and sunshine. What is a beginning and what is an end. Joy spends her days working the graveyard shift at a store outside Boston and nursing an addiction to cough syrup, an attempt to suppress her troubled past. But when a sickness that begins with silver blisters and memory loss and ends with death sweeps the country, Joy, for the first time in her life, seems to have an advantage, she is immune. At once a hauntingly beautiful portrayal of a dystopian future and a powerful exploration of loneliness.
