Before I Die by Jenny Downham
Before I Die

littlebird, January 27, 2010

Tessa lives in England and has cancer. She makes a list of things to-do. She wants to have lived a full life before her time runs out, so she begins to try drugs, sex, and other illegal activities, even though it sometimes hurts the people that are most important to her. The author does a fantastic job of making the book realistic. While reading it, I often felt like I was living the story. It really changes your perspective on life, and it is surprisingly uplifting. I understand that this book may not be for everyone, but I highly recommend it.
