I received this book through a GoodReads Giveaway.*

A touching and humorous story of a daughter who decides to spend a year caring for her father after he receives an Alzheimer's diagnosis. Sharp and funny, this book flew right by as Ruth spends time with her erratic and sometimes lucid father while also reflecting on her own life - she's recently quit her job, ended an engagement, and is struggling over what she should do next. A good, light read and one I'd recommend for anyone with an Alzheimer's sufferer in their family. ( )

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
I am glad that I was given the opportunity to read an advance copy of Goodbye, Vitamin. I found it an interesting read. I think the author did a great job with the complex family dynamics in this book. I appreciated the humor, particularly loving the father’s journal entries from Ruth’s childhood. Sadly, the reversal of roles was less humorous. I liked that the book was limited to one “year in the life”; I did not want to “witness” the inevitable decline in Howard’s health and how it would affect the family. I was happy that the book was able to demonstrate mostly positive events in a difficult situation. ( )
