On paper, Viive McBroom lives the perfect life--a key player in a fast-paced, technical field, one promotion away from real success--but that's only if you ignore one little problem.Sandwiched between one migraine and the next, Viive's life is like those choose-your-own-adventure books you read as a kid, only less fun and with a lot more drugs. Faced with frustration from her loved ones and the dark machinations of a new coworker, Viive feels herself getting pulled under by guilt, apologies, and workplace shenanigans. But then she meets the Migraine Mafia, a quirky, vibrant support group, and her fragile camouflage begins to crumble. She discovers that a room full of strangers just might be able to change the way she views her illness--and realizes that if she doesn't learn to ask for help, her health isn't the only thing she stands to lose.Sometimes painful, frequently hilarious, always entertaining, The Migraine Mafia is the story of one woman's life-altering quest to thrive in the face of chronic illness. The Migraine Mafia has been translated into Estonian and Latvian and is being excerpted in the forthcoming Understanding Migraine through Literature from Kent State University Press.
