Before I Die

The only character that I liked was Adam. Her list was stupid. It’s her manipulation that really gets to me. Tessa’s ramblings got on Zoey’s nerves, and Zoeys tendency to put others first upset Tessa a lot of the time.

I guess the fact that this book is all kinds of beautiful factors hugely in my love for re. It’s really about living. And it’s not fair.

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. Though well-written, the novel is a bit predictable.

Tessa quiere experimentar cosas buenas como: I feel like the author ticked every box with this book in comparison to how everything just felt wrong with You Against Me. I can also see myself rereading it over and over again.

Before I Die by Jenny Downham

I miss my grandparents. I really didn’t like this book. Book should have more meaning to them, especially when it is about a girl who is dying.

Sixteen-year-old Tessa doesn’t have a very long time left dr live.

Although she is angry sometimes – at the world really – she has the tendency to take it out on the person who most -definitely in my opinion loves her most. Before I Die is a tear-jerker. You might not cry in this one. Jenny Downham born is a British novelist and an ex-actor. I keep thinking only a heartless baby-eating monster would give this book less then four stars. Lists of things she wants to accomplish in the short time she has to live.


The story itself was all over the place. I feel almost hopeful, which is mad. With the help of her friend Zoey, this begins Tessa’s list of things to experience before she dies. Jan 21, Alaina rated it really liked it Shelves: I just want to say that this book broke my heart and everything else. And she has one. Cosas que odio de este libro: For the most part of the story I didn’t really care about Tessa, about her illness and her strange wishes as I never got attached to her. Her best friend, Zoey is even worse: 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.

This book could have been really great, if it wasn’t for all of the I really didn’t like this book. Zoe is the one friend who does not treat her different because she is sick and dying, they have an intense friendship with a lot of typical teenage push and pull. This book presented all sides to it, no holding back.

Sure, the ending made me cry. 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.

She knows that she has only a few months to live and struggles to come to terms with her fate. So she makes a list and vows to do everything on it before she dies.

Tessa has been treated for leukemia for the past four years. I do like how her list changes to everyday things, but still I feel like it was a waste downgam a read, and I am forever stuck with the mental images of horrible those sex scenes. Once I was over the confusion and as to what to do with this bit of information, or how to react, I just went with the dee.

Now Adam is pretty perfect. This is how the story starts.

Tessa’s reactions to her cancer and her behavior seemed very realistic and Downham’s portrayal of her relationship with her family was extremely well written and believable.

Because I’m unable to recommend Before I Die to anyone I’m going to go ahead and recommend Before I Fallwhich is another YA book which deals with death and is, in my humble opinion, infinitely better then this book.

Somewhere down in the house, a door opens and shuts.
