Agnes doesn't know it, but she only has one hundred days left to live. When she was just a baby, she was diagnosed with Progeria, a rare disease that causes her body to age at roughly ten times the normal rate. Now nearly sixteen years old, Agnes has already exceeded her life expectancy.

Moira has been Agnes’s best friend and protector since they were in elementary school. Due to her disorder, Agnes is still physically small, but Moira is big. Too big for her own liking. So big that people call her names. With her goth makeup and all-black clothes, Moira acts like she doesn’t care. But she does.

Boone was friends with both girls in the past, but that was a long time ago—before he did the thing that turned Agnes and Moira against him, before his dad died, before his mom got too sad to leave the house.

An unexpected event brings Agnes and Moira back together with Boone, but when romantic feelings start to develop, the trio’s friendship is put to the test.

About the author

Nicole McInnes is an author, speaker, writing and literature instructor, animal lover, chocolate aficionado, and mom. Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, she attended the University of California at Santa Cruz and Northern Arizona University.

The “idea seeds” for 100 Days—and for Agnes’s, Moira’s and Boone’s characters—emerged from a multitude of experiences. These include Nicole’s work with therapeutic horseback riding programs for people with emotional, physical, and cognitive disabilities; her own postmodern/goth/punk-inspired fashion and music phase as a young adult; and her many years of living in rustic, rural settings, where water needs to be hauled and pipes sometimes freeze.

Nicole lives in the mountains of northern Arizona with her family. The nonhuman menagerie-in-residence consists of elderly Arabian horses, middle-aged dogs of the Australian Shepherd and golden variety, a dieting Siamese cat, a betta fish with attitude, and occasional stray visitors of various species.

The San Francisco Bay Area remains her second home. 100 Days is her second novel.
