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.
