Ways to Live Forever by Sally Nicholls

Ways to Live ForeverWow. If you are looking for a fantastic read, then I definitely recommend this one. I thought it was going to be similar to Drums, Girls and Dangerous Pie, but it wasn’t really. The main character and narrator, Sam, is 11 years old and has leukemia. He only has about a year to live and this is his book. His teacher (who teaches him and his friend Felix at Sam’s house three days a week) encourages the boys to write in a journal. Sam takes it a step farther and starts writing a book. He has lists of things including: things he wants to do, things that happen after you die, and more. He also has questions nobody answers like: What does a dead person look like? feel like? This is his story and it is touching and wonderful and sad and moving. I think it presents death in a way that I have never seen done before in a book. This is Nicholls’ first book and I hope to see many more from her.
