Mia "Rabbit" Hayes is one of the lucky ones. She loves her life, ordinary as it is, and she loves the extraordinary people in it: her spirited daughter, Juliet; her colorful, unruly family; and the only man in her big heart, Johnny Faye. Rabbit has big ideas, full of music, love, and so much life. She has plans for the world - but the world has other plans for Rabbit: a devastating diagnosis.

Rabbit is feisty. With every ounce of love and strength in her, she promises that she will overcome. She will fight, fight, fight. She will be with those who love her for as long as she can. As her friends and family rally to celebrate Rabbit's last days, they look to her for strength, support, and her unyielding zest for life - because she is Rabbit Hayes, and she will live until she dies.

An exuberant novel full of happiness and heartbreak, Anna McPartlin's The Last Days of Rabbit Hayes is a story of laughing through life's surprises and finding the joy in every moment.
