Reviews, Tess

Before I Die by Jenny Downham

10.10.08 | Comment?

Tessa is a 16 year old girl dying from Cancer.  Doctors have told her she only has a few months left to live.  Determined to make the most of her short life, Tess embarks on a journey of personal discovery, completing a list of 10 things she wants to do before she dies.  Despite its sad theme, this novel is enlightening and surprisingly funny.  I really warmed to the characters and enjoyed following Tessa’s adventures with her friends.  I’d recommend Before I Die to anyone looking for something light and life-affirming to read.

If you enjoyed this, try Dear Zoe by Philip Beard.
