Everyone has to die. We all know it.
With only a few months of life left, sixteen-year-old Tessa knows it better than most.
She's made a list though - ten things she wants to do before she dies. Number one is sex. Starting tonight.
But getting what you want isn't easy. And getting what youwant doesn't always give you what you need. And sometimes the most unexpected things become important.
Uplifting, life-affirming, joyous - this extraordinary novel celebrates what it is to be alive by confronting what it's really like to die. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
Jenny Downham did a very good job writing this book.
I found this story an easy, fast moving read with frustrations & humanity along the way...I became immersed in her life & was very emotional at the end.
Trying to make the best of the time she has left, Tessa comes up with a list of things she would like to experience before she dies.
I love her attention to details, the use of description and the way the story is told is heart warming, heart wrenching, and makes you feel as you are part of the story. Read morePublished 10 days ago by A. McKee
