SALLY NICHOLLS ways to live forever (new) rm20
1. My name is Sam.
2. I am eleven years old.
3. I collect stories and fantastic facts.
4. I have leukemia.
5. By the time you read this, I will probably be dead.
Living through the final stages of leukemia, Sam collects stories, questions, lists, and pictures that create a profoundly moving portrait of how a boy lives when he knows his time is almost up.
I have been wanting to read this book - but kept putting it off for another. Finally yesterday i started reading and I found I could not stop - finished it in one day! I have 3 copies of this title, keeping one for myself since I love it so much, and 2 are up for sale as above.
The narrator of this book is a dying boy - and his simple + innocent way of writing will simply make you turn the pages without wanting to stop. I cried my way through, but maybe because I am a mother myself - and I pictured this boy as my own son, writing his last days away - and it broke my heart again and again.
