Get Reading: Still Alice

Still Alice by Lisa Genova

When Harvard professor Alice Howland gets lost in her own neighbourhood she knows something is terribly wrong. Diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease at 50, she struggles to find purpose in her life. As her concept of self gradually slips away, her family struggle to keep the Alice they know for as long as possible. Alice is living in the moment, living for each day. But she is still Alice. Moving, haunting, with a stunning ending, Still Alice is a book you'll never forget.
