Ways to live forever by Sally Nicholls


Reviewed by Ben Whitcombe as part of the 50 Book Challenge

Sam has cancer and he is dying. His friend Felix also has cancer. Sam makes a list of all the things he wants to do before he dies, and how many he can complete. In the story you hear about Sam's family, his teacher, and how he goes to school at home until he is too sick for that. It is funny and really really sad.
