Summary Before I Die

Before I Die characters ç eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Summary ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ¹ Jenny Downham Jenny Downham ¹ 7 Read & Download Onships 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 out. We know three pages into Before I Die that sixteen year old Tessa won t survive her leukemia and that there s plenty she still wants from life So she makes a list and vows to do everything on it before she diesLike most teenagers Tessa is at odds with her parents and angsty about how life s shortchanged her At first her ranting and left field demands seem too adolescent Isn t the looming presence of death supposed to mature her beyond her yearsBut that s precisely the kind of dying young trope that Downham admirably resists throughout the novel Tessa burns up a maddening number of days moping when we think she should be fulfilling her dreams She finally pushes herself to face facts I have two choices stay wrapped in blankets and get on with dying or get the list back together and get on with living Downham escapes the common shortcoming of many young adult novels in which the only character that ever really matters to us is the speaker In this novel Tessa s relationships are so dynamic that we ache with her at the thought of losing them Throughout the book their interactions thrum with tension and tenderness There s Cal the tactless younger brother who helpfully explains the process of decomposition And Zoe the careless best friend who has her own troubles to wake her up to life There s Dad in denial determined to save Tessa through organic foods and fierce hugs Mom who cut out about the time of Tessa s diagnosis and who remains slightly outside of the helping circle without becoming a monster And there s Adam the blessing of love and vulnerability that lands next door to Tessa at the right time And where a lesser writer might swill us readers around in dying girl thought soup Downham lets the telling detail speak for Tessa s feelings instead Her anger comes to us through her as she gives herself points for the imagined deaths of healthy strangers One point for the lump on her neck raw and pink as a crab s claw We feel her hunger for life as she licks an ice cream stick until the wood rasps my tongue We know her true well wishes for those she loves as she dreams up a replacement for her boyfriend a girl with lovely curves and breath like oranges There s nothing treacly here It s a brave humanist novel one that leaves the reader gulping the polluted precious air of Tessa s world with a passion and astonishment almost as great as Tessa s Downham earns for us the catharsis of the ending for her characters come to take up real space in our hearts Up until the last word I think we hope that Tessa will somehow against all odds keep breathing When she doesn t we mourn for Tessa just as she wished by remembering her

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

This review can be found at ReadingAfterMidnightcomI don t really know what to say about this book I didn t like it that much but I didn t hate it either The badFor 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 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 ones that someone would like to think about before dying I just expected something else from her and I was disappointed by all this 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 all I 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 older I hated her mother who seemed not to care about her at all Ok so there were lots of things I didn t like in this book The goodThe only character that I liked was Adam I don t know why he fell in love with Tessa because she didn t even deserved it and didn t deserve him and because this happened so suddenly but he was really nice and caring There were some scenes with him being there for her and giving her all his love that made me like him I felt sad for him really because Tessa was going to die and that was the end for her but he will remember her all his life he will lose a part of him forever so he was the only character in this book that made me care There were times that Tessa wanted him close and there were times when she told him to get away and never come back but he was always there for her never disappointing her I love you he whispers angrily into my neck It hurts than anything ever has but I do So don t you dare tell me I don t Don t you ever say it again The best part of this book is of course the ending All those dreams mixed with reality and thoughts the notes for the ones she was letting behind the people that cared for her being finally there for her that was the only part that touched my heart that was the only part that made me care because death is hard even if only written in the books death makes you cry death makes you think about all the thing that you want to do while still alive SO what s on your list You never know how much time you have so how many items on your list did you check so far and how many are still waiting to be done
