Before I Die

by Jenny Downham

Tessa is a teenager who is dying of cancer. She knows that her time is limited and has composed a list of ten things she'd like to do/try before she dies.

Sex, fame, saying "yes" to all requests for one day, driving, love, getting her parents back together, breaking the law. . .

Narrated by Tessa, it is, obviously, a touching story. However, this novel has been getting outstanding reviews. I'm not sure that I can say that. I will say that it is very, very good.
