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

I feel like a jerk for not giving this story stars I mean it s a book about a sixteen year old girl trying to live life to the fullest before dying of cancer I keep thinking only a heartless baby eating monster would give this book less then four stars Well I suppose I am that monster minus the whole baby eating thingIt s not like the premise failed to pull at my heartstrings as I read this book I genuinely felt for the girl And it s not like the author went out of her way to manipulate her audience This book never crosses the line into full on manipulation though there are times I feel it comes close but not enough to bother me My problem lies with the protagonist Tessa Yeah you read that right I don t like the main character a teenage girl dying of cancer Before you start throwing things let me explain Like I said before I felt for Tessa because her situation is incredibly tragic but I m sorry she sucks I know she s dying but that doesn t give her an excuse to manipulate everyone around her into doing what she wants them to do Dying young isn t some get out of jail free card you can wave around when your actions have negative conseuences that you d rather not face Here s the deal Tessa has a list of ten things she wants to do before she dies Sounds good right Well the majority of the things on the list are reckless or selfish or illegal or just plain stupid Sometime a combination of all four And you know what That s not so bad doesn t necessarily bother me Teenagers do stupid selfish andor illegal stuff Tessa wants to sow some wild oats before dying I get it What bothers me is the fact that she believes the rules shouldn t apply to her because she is dying she can do whatever she wants damn the conseuences What s worse Tessa demands a lot from her friends and family At times she asks them to do things that even under the tragic circumstances are too much to ask When they seem reluctant to comply she tells them that whatever it is she s asking happens to be on her list Most of the time these things were not on her list until conveniently they were It s her manipulation that really gets to me I hate that she resorts to manipulation to get whatever she wants At one point Tessa throws a monumental fit I mean off the charts huge because she doesn t get what she wants when she wants it to make love with her boyfriend Don t get me wrong I knew her her freak out had to do with the fact that she s dying so young before she s old enough to really do anything be anyone then anything else But still she took it a little too far I thinkIn the end I got the idea that she had a full grasp at what was truly important in life But for me Tessa s understanding came too late in the game It happened so late that I heartless monster that I am had already spent some time wondering when she was going to just die already Yes this really did go through my mind then a few times near the end of this book if this weren t a total work of fiction I d be going to hell for that I m sure I know I m a monster for not giving this book stars unfortunately I m unable to give this book then the two stars I ve given it PS Because I m unable to recommend Before I Die to anyone I m going to go ahead and recommend Before I Fall which is another YA book which deals with death and is in my humble opinion infinitely better then this book

Tessa has been treated for leukemia for the past four years Now since her treatment options have been exhausted she is spending her last few months completing a list of things she wants to do before she dies The list includes some predictable items breaking a few laws driving having sex and a few curveballs experiencing love getting her parents back together but most of the book is dedicated to Tessa s experiences as she attempts to finish her list and come to terms with her death Have you ever seen that Dane Cook standup bit where he talks about how we cry He starts off talking about how you just start out crying and then it goes downhill from there as we imagine all the worst things possible to make us cry even harder I m not advocating Dane Cook s standup I m much of a Jim Gaffigan girl but I always laugh at Cook s crying bit because he s pretty spot on I read the first 50 pages of this when I was PMSing and I was like This is so awful It must be so terrible for Tessa and her family She ll never get to do x She ll never get to do y Oh my God it must be terrible for these families Losing a child is horrible This is awful for her brother What if I lost MY brother What if I died What if one of my siblings died I miss my grandparents I can t believe I wasn t there for my friend when she lost x What will I do when I lose my parents and by this point I can t even open my eyes So yeah I put this one back down for a week Aaaand when I picked it back up I was able to complete most of the book with a straight face until the ending when I totally lost it again But the point is that I was mostly crying because I exacerbated the situation by my own volition You might not cry in this oneThe writing in this one is pretty solid but I m a little ashamed to say that Tessa is a frustrating character She has a right to be selfish but she goes beyond that she is often unnecessarily mean at times mostly to her father Her mother on the other hand deserves all the meanness Tessa could dish out to her which sadly doesn t really happen It takes a certain type of horribleness to abandon your sick child It s hard to know what to do when people are sick or how to help your friends when they are losing or have lost someone We are all pretty much winging it But just being there is often enough and Tessa s mother couldn t even be present for years of her daughter s illness She can join the father from another recent read of mine Sisters in Sanity in the Awful YA Parent Club I felt like the most interesting part of the book had nothing to do with Tessa s list or her budding love I most enjoyed her interactions with her brother The factoids they shared and the frank discussions about what happens when you die were so interesting to me I m still thinking about the way the author described being buried under an apple blossom tree I loved that bit And I also really enjoyed Tessa s notes to her family and Zoey These arent really spoilers in case anyone is wonderingI have no clue who I would recommend this to My Goodreads friends are all over the ratings scale and I m staking my flag down in the 3 star zone I guess if you enjoy books about death and dying or if you are looking for a cry this might be a good pick for you I mean sometimes I watch Little Women just to cry when Beth dies We re all a little messed up at least I hope it s not just me
