The Promise of Stardust - Priscille Sibley This book made me want to start a new shelf called books that make me think. When Matt's wife falls and ends up brain dead, he thought he had the decision to take her off life support in the bag. Then he finds out she's pregnant and everything changes. What comes next is a battle between Matt and the others who loved Elle to make a decision about the future of Elle/the baby.

This book really drove home the need to have a clear and up to date advanced directive, even if you think you won't need it for a long time. Accidents happen all the time and sometimes our bodies are holding secrets that we don't even think about. I definitely was in DEEP THOUGHT mode after this book.
