520    In this landmark medical narrative, in the tradition of 
       The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and The Spirit 
       Catches You and You Fall Down, Pulitzer Prize–winning 
       journalists Mark Johnson and Kathleen Gallagher chronicle 
       the story of Nic Volker, the Wisconsin boy at the center 
       of a daring breakthrough in medicine—a complete gene 
       sequencing to discover the cure for an otherwise 
       undiagnosable illness. At just two years old, Nic 
       experienced a searing pain that signaled the awakening of 
       a new and deadly disease, one that would hurl Nic and his 
       family up against the limits of modern medicine.  For 
       years, through false starts and failed cures, Nic holds on
       to life, buoyed up by his mother’s fierce drive to get him
       the care he needs. But when even the world’s experts are 
       stumped by Nic’s illness, his doctors come up with a 
       radical, long-shot plan: a step into the unknown.  The 
       next major scientific frontier, following the completion 
       of the Human Genome Project, was to figure out how to use 
       our new knowledge to save lives—to bring genomic or 
       personalized medicine into reality. It’s a quest that is 
       undertaken by researchers around the world. But it is only
       when geneticist Howard Jacob hears about young Nic that 
       the finish line finally comes into sight: It’s no longer a
       race to make history. It’s a race to save this boy’s life.
