Set against the fall of the Berlin Wall and the first Gulf War, this coming of age memoir is an intimate portrait of two friends who broach the promise of adulthood to find themselves navigating not only the complications of young womanhood, but a devastating illness as well. Giving voice to the friend who's there for hospital visits, side-effects, late-night phone calls about fears and what-ifs,The Last Goldfish traces the impacts of a terminal cancer diagnosis on a young person--what it means to face the possibility of death at the very age when one's identity is being shaped.
