Today I am Carey

Image of item
Book
Mildred is dying of Alzheimer's disease. As her memories fade, she requires the aid of a full-time android to assist her in her everyday life. The android's duty: to tend to Mildred as Alzheimer's steals her away one memory at a time, and to pretend to be her absent family. Soon, Mildred passes away, and the android Carey must find a new purpose in the world--and in its new family: Paul Owens, the overworked businessman. Susan Owens, the dedicated teacher. And Millie, a curious little girl who will grow up alongside her android best friend. As the humans around it age and change, Carey struggles to understand life's challenges and to make its own path. Carey must learn to live. To grow. To care. Today I Am Carey is a story about life... and an android's memories.
