I understand the desire to have a boyfriend, to be kissed and have sex, probably at her age this would be an important part of her life, but the other ‘wishes’ were kind of stupid and not the o This review can be found at ReadingAfterMidnight. This book is beautiful and gut wrenching. Oh my God, it must be terrible for these families. This book was just FULL of it, and it was very graphic. Instead, she gets a band-aid baby. Because honestly, how often in YA do you get put with a love interest who our protagonist admits is ugly?

But still, lbiro took it a little too far, I think.

Looks aside, he’s a little too perfect. Boy was I wrong! Dec 21, Ari rated it liked it Shelves: Aug 11, Aly Fantasy4eva rated it it was amazing Shelves: I never understood how these two could be friends. This is awful for her brother.

This story is heartbreaking, beautifully written, and absolutely unforgettable.

Before I Die by Jenny Downham

It was so freaking good. What’s the worst thing that can happen? Jenny Downham born is a British novelist and an ex-actor.

And if that was what the author was aiming for, well, she sure as hell succeeded. The heroine in this book started out looking more or less the same: I have just read it. I ddownham this message through my fingers and into his, up his arm and into his heart. It’s well-observed, but other authors have managed to tease more nuance from their teenage characters.


Feb 20, Kody Keplinger rated it it was amazing. There are so many questions. And I’m sorry to leave you. More than this I hated her dumb friend who reminded her every 5 minutes that she’s gonna die and who was NEVER there for her and when she tried to help Tessa with her stupid wishes I just wanted to punch her for being such an idiot and not being a good friend at allI hated her little brother telling her that he can’t wait for her to be gone sometimes he seemed to be 5 years old even if we’ve been told he was olderI hated her mother who seemed not to care about her at all.

Its roots will reach into the soft mess of my body and suck me dry. I think that what it makes this book different from others, apart from the topic. I don’t like the main character, a teenage girl dying of cancer. The characters are well established Tessa’s father particularly and this makes the story realistic and believable. Not eloquently stated, but true.

Before I Die

This is how the story starts. It was somewhat like watching a reality TV show – you watch all the characters develop and get to know them even when you already know during the finale they’re going to die. I most enjoyed her interactions with her brother. The story itself was all over the place. I truly tried to sympathize with her, but throughout the story, there was nothing that made me feel sorry for her. Tessa quiere experimentar cosas buenas como: Up until the last word, I think, we hope that Tessa will somehow, against all odds, keep breathing.


Have you ever seen that Dane Cook standup bit where he talks about how we cry? These are the things that make her feel alive and she embraces them in a way that most of us who think we have years left infront of us don’t. This book never crosses the line into full on manipulation, though there are times I feel it comes close, but not enough to bother me.

It’s partly the reason for it not getting five stars. But what is even the point? By the way, keep a few tissues or the whole box with you when you reach the last few chapters. I understand ds desire to have a boyfriend, to be kissed and have sex, probably at her age this would be an important part of her life, but the other ‘wishes’ were kind of stupid and not the ones that someone would like to think about before dying.

Her mother, on the other hand, deserves all the meanness Tessa could dish out to her. View all 8 comments.

Dec 05, Nicola rated it it was ok Shelves: But he knows enough to be devastated and scared. So, she makes a list and tries to follow it. But those are also the ones that touch me the most. And as cheesy as it’s going to sound, this really did end up being a book about life in all its beauty and complexity.
