Thanks to all who entered!
Tessa has just months to live. Fighting back against hospital visits, endless tests, drugs with excruciating side-effects, Tessa compiles a list. It's her To Do Before I Die list. And number one is Sex. Released from the constraints of 'normal' life, Tessa tastes new experiences to make her feel alive while her failing body struggles to keep up. Tessa's feelings, her relationships with her father and brother, her estranged mother, her best friend, and her new boyfriend, all are painfully crystallised in the precious weeks before her time finally runs out.
An unflinchingly honest story told in the words of a 16-year-old about what it's like to die of leukemia. Before I Die is a brilliantly crafted novel, heartbreaking yet astonishingly life affirming. This book will appeal to fans of Alice Sebold’s Lovely Bones.
I decided that, because I'm new to Blogger and I really need followers, I'm going to hold a contest. And since this is my first contest it's going to be just a normal comment-and-follow contest. I'm going to be giving away Before I Die by Jenny Downham. So, here are the oh-so-simple entry rules.
