I have never been to a nursing home or visited someone sick, so I have no personal experience, I cannot tell you that age doesn’t worry me or I”m not worried I will never develop dementia, but reading this book has changed my perspective. Perhaps, this girl was lucky to visit someone in a nursing home, for it influenced her whole life, something I would be lucky to have given the chance….
I really enjoyed this book, give it 5 stars and I think you will too! Give it a chance, folks and enjoy!

Traumatized by visits to the nursing home to see their elderly aunt, Louise and her sister Jeannie made a youthful pact to not live past age eighty. Was it a silly childhood idea, or were they wise beyond their years? Most importantly, will they go through with it when the time comes?
Eighty and out review:
Eighty and out by Kim Cano is a book that surprises you. It’s the story of two sisters who make a pact to never make it past eighty, to never have to see the horrors that are associated with growing old and living in nursing homes, to live life to the fullest and then just snap, be done. But only one sister truly decides to live for that promise….read and discover an enthralling world, the emotionally charged story of a girl who loves, lives, grieves, loses and stays strong through all the pains of age… as she discovers her true fate!
Kim has also written two animal books: For Animal Lovers, a short story collection for kids ages 9 to 12. and for adults who are young at heart.
Kim Cano lives in the Chicago suburbs with her husband and cat.
