Before I Die by Jenny Downham

The story of Tessa, a young teenage girl who has only months to live ... a brilliantly crafted novel, heartbreaking yet life-affirming.

Tessa has just months to live. Fighting back against hospital visits, endless tests, drugs with excruciating side-effects, Tessa compiles a list. It’s her To Do Before I Die list. And number one is Sex. Released from the constraints of ‘normal’ life, Tessa tastes new experiences to make her feel alive while her failing body struggles to keep up. Tessa’s feelings, her relationships with her father and brother, her estranged mother, her best friend, and her new boyfriend, all are painfully crystallised in the precious weeks before Tessa’s time finally runs out.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. My mother is a breast cancer survivor so this is a topic dear to my heart. What am I missing? Thanks for your help! Told through animal characters, a young hedgehog gets sick and his mother seeks the white wolf for help.

The adaptation of the best-selling novel by John Green follows a young teen diagnosed with cancer who goes about living her life as normally as she can. Though the book is inspired by a young woman who lost her battle with thyroid cancer , the story is a work of fiction. Recently, we caught up with Green and asked about his decision to write a fictional book about cancer. To research the book, Green says he spoke with a lot of people familiar with the disease and read a lot of material on the subject. I read a lot of memoirs, textbooks about the disease so that I could try to understand it. Ultimately, Greene says his decision behind writing the book was to write about illness.
