Light wear to DJ, 1 inch tear bottom edge ; DJ in protective Mylar sleeve, unclipped. A bright, solid book ; 321 pages; Claire "is the youngest of three sisters, two of whom are second-generation migraine sufferers. A childhood of dark bedrooms & an ever-increasing number of food and air-quality restrictions have made Claire cautious and fastidious. This mild-mannered Toronto cartographer cannot enter a room without mentally mapping its dimensions & keeps putting off telling her boyfriend that she doesn't want a baby. When she receives an unexpected phone call, however, asking about the whereabouts of her eldest sister Rachel, Claire suddenly finds herself on a risky journey of emotional and spiritual self-discovery. Strong-willed, passionate, & unpredictable, Rachel has always refused to give in to her own headaches. A freelance medical journalist based in New York City, she dared to have a child on her own (though she eventually gave her to the care of her middle sister, Allison), & she has experimented with every migraine cure imaginable--no matter how dangerous or off the wall. As Claire follows Rachel's rapidly vanishing trail--from a New Age healer in Amsterdam to Las Vegas's nightmare "Strip"--she gradually comes to a new understanding of her own headaches."
