Author: Elizabeth Stuckey-French
Call #: STU
In the 1950’s, pregnant Marylou is given a strange cocktail of vitamins but really it is radioactive material that was given to a multitude of unknowing women to test the effects of radiation. Marylou’s daughter ultimately dies from cancer when she is eight and now, fifty years later, Marylou wants revenge on the doctor responsible for the study. Told in alternating voices by seven people who all have secrets to hide, this novel is an engrossing, darkly humorous account of dysfunction galore.
