It’s 1969 in New York City’s Lower East Side, and word has spread of a psychic who claims to be able to tell anyone the day they will die. The Gold children sneak out to hear their fortunes. Though the siblings keep the dates secret from one another, their prophecies inform their next 5 decades. This book is a deeply moving testament to the power of story, and the pull of familial bonds.
