Before I Die ð Ationships with her father and brother her estranged mother her best friend and her new boyfriend are all painfully crystallized in the precious weeks before Tessa’s time finally runs o. This is a morbid little story Beautiful but morbid I can't help thinking that the author demands instant literary kudos simply by dealing with the uncomfortable subject of teenage death Unfortunately I don't think the novel uite deserves that kudos It provides no great profundity and though poignant I can't help but think it compares poorly to the 2003 movie My Life Without MeFor a start the central character Tessa is hard to like There's a prickly sullenness about her that is particularly teenaged It's well observed but other authors have managed to tease nuance from their teenage characters Her best friend Zoey is even worse shallow and annoying Adam the literal boy next door is so gruff as to seem devoid of personality – merely a prop to deliver Tessa a chance at romantic love before she diesSince the novel's summary spoils a major plot point I will also talk about it Zoey's pregnancy a badly veiled authorial device lifedeath geddit manages to glorify teen pregnancy Slutty reckless Zoey could do with therapy to deal with her distant parents some self esteem building or simply the chance to grow up Instead she gets a band aid baby Ironically many of the things dying Tessa craves for herself – the chance to go to university and travel the world – Zoey is denied rewarded instead with a council flat and vouchers to exchange for furnishingsThough well written the novel is a bit predictable Tessa has sex with a stranger and it's bad; then she falls in love and waxes rhapsodic about her second sexual experience She tries drugs and the author gets carried away with poetic descriptions of her drug induced state Blah blah blah It's a short book but it feels like a long slog to the inevitable conclusionSure the ending made me cry But then I also cried while listening to 'The Luckiest' by Ben Folds yesterday Death is sad It doesn't take a great writer to sueeze pathos from teenage death Review Ü PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ô Jenny Downham

I started this book wondering Why am I reading this and I ended it wondering Why did I read this But my two reasons for thinking these things were very differentIn the beginning I felt like this book would be a repetition of Skinny a massive disappointment in which the author was enad with the idea of a sick frail floundering heroine The heroine in this book started out looking or less the same I'm sick I'm gonna die the world sucks so leave me aloneTessa begins the book by deciding that she wants to have sex before she dies With the help of her friend Zoey this begins Tessa's list of things to experience before she dies In case you're wondering I decided to read this because I related to the list She keeps the list written on her wall which alarms her father when he sees the things she plans to do break the law try drugs become famous etc 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 Tessa's world didn't stop because she was dying and I feel that Ms Downham did a good job of capturing the complexity of emotions here Tessa's boyfriend's decision to move away for college so he wouldn't be reminded of her Tessa's father constantly wavering between needing to discipline her and wanting to cherish his last months with her her younger brother's inability to really process what was happening So besides a few characters that could have been fleshed out a little the middle of this book is actually uite goodOf course we all know how the book is going to end But I didn't know I was going to spend the last 30 pages sobbing Poor Joker was so freaked out And it was so painful that I asked why the heck I put myself through reading a book where I knew the main character would most likely end up dead But I did and got about 35 stars out of it I can tell you this It ain't Lurlene McDaniel
