Before I Die- Jenny Downham



Everyone has to die. We all know it.

With only a few months left to live, sixteen year old Tessa knows that better then most.

After finding out she was going to die she made a list. Ten thing she wants to do before she dies. Number one is...sex. And the list starts tonight. As the book progresses and Tessa gets sicker things on the list change and things get added.

But Tessa soon finds out that getting what she wants isn't as easy as she thought. And getting what you want doesn't always give you what you need. But most importantly that unexpected things sometimes become the most important and most special.

I love this book. Tessa seemed to find herself and what she truly wanted throughout out the book. She found love in the most unexpected place. And she found happiness. To get over the fact that she was going to die and she couldn't do any thing about it. Tessa helped her best friend and her parents and made it a little easier for her little brother to cope with her death when she did die. But the best part, that you think is going to be the saddest (which was sad...i cried) was when she died. She died at home with the people who loved and cared for her the most. And no one could ask for anything more then that.

Love,
Lexi <3
