Book recommendation...

"Daughter of Family G" by Ami McKay

Just released two weeks ago, it's a biography and a memoir all at the same time and a truly excellent read.
It tells the history of how Lynch Syndrome was discovered and expands on a documentary that Ami created 15+ years ago.

I highly recommend it.
