Summary The Jade family lives an all-organic homeschool lifestyle that means no plastics, no cell phones, and no vaccines. She doesn't agree with her parents on everything, but it is the only life Juniper has ever known. To be in this family, you've got to stick to the rules-- until the unthinkable happens. Juniper contracts the measles and unknowingly passes the disease along, with tragic consequences. She feels simultaneously helpless and furious at her parents, and herself. Juniper comes to a decision: she is going to get vaccinated. When her parents refuse, she hires a lawyer. But is waging war for her autonomy worth losing her family?-- Adapted from jacket.
