There s no point having wishes if you don t at least try to do them Sam Mcueen Ways to Live Forever P 60 This book subtly captured me and led me into its story until before I even knew what was happening I was totally invested heart mind and soul in Sam and his life The tension of approaching climax weighed on me as if it were happening to my own friend and the panic juxtaposed against Sam s own calm regarding the seeming inevitability of his impending death lay powerfully on my mind the entire time If this story were American I would say that I could hardly think of another book winning the 2009 Newbery Medal Things I Want to Happen After I die You re allowed to be sad but you re not allowed to be too sad If you re always sad when you think about me then how can you remember me Sam Mcueen Ways to Live Forever P 207

This book was so far out of my comfort zoneThis is a book you can read in one sitting and finish in about two hours However I just couldn t I needed to be in the right mood for the final part because I knew what was coming So I put the book aside for like three months and today was the day I picked it up again and broke my heartThis book isn t literature It s written very easily and it was really far out of my comfort zone because I normally read YA dystopianfantasy But this book it shocked me awake it broke my heart and I m still crying writing this review Sam is only ten years old and has cancer He knows his days are limited so he decides to write a book about what he still wants to accomplice in life This book really reads like a diary and it is super uick and the beginning is actually uite fun It really captures the life of a sick young child well and it was so believable with all the sticky notes and lists I actually learned a few new things from this book reading Sam s fun facts I also found the side characters Sam s family Felix and Miss Wolters super believable The dark side of this book was of course that Sam has cancer And there isn t really any sugar coating the reality of a cancer patient But that actually was why this book was so heartbreaking I know there are so many kids and also adults struggling with this disease And I think that there isn t a person walking this earth who doesn t know someone who died off this terrible disease And though you know what s coming it doesn t make it easier reading the final pages I think I cried reading like the last 40 pages of this book After I finished I sat there for about 10 minutes thinking about life with the book on my lap It made me appreciate so many I have and take for granted Being healthy and having a healthy family are one of the most important things in life

When he was eight the son of friends of mine went through a sort of John Webster phase being much obsessed with death His fondness for poking at road kills and gazing at graveyards troubled his parents of course but not half as much as the interminable uestions What s it like to die How do you know when you re dead What happens afterwards Why do we have to die anyway These are The uestions that Nobody Answers according to Sam Mcueen the 11 year old hero of Ways to Live Forever But Sam isn t just going through his morbid phase For him these uestions have a special urgency because he is going to die soon and he knows itWays to Live Forever is the diaryscrapbook Sam compiles during the last two months of his life Reading it is less like reading a novel than watching an exceptionally brilliant TV documentary The text is punctuated by ephemera drawings tickets and especially lists Lists not only of those eternally unanswerable uestions but also of facts Sam likes facts He believes touchingly that they are the opposite of uestionsA different kind of list gives the book its structure List No 3 Things that I want to do ranges from the entirely reasonable Go up down escalators and go down up escalators via the barely achievable Ride in an airship to the impossible Go up in a spaceship and see Earth from space I don t want to give away the plot but I have to say that all these wishes are granted one way or anotherKilling children is something that writers indulge in from time to time It s a high risk business If the crime is aggravated by mawkishness the penalties can be severe Passing sentence on Dickens Oscar Wilde famously asserted that One must have a heart of stone to read the death of Little Nell without laughing In seeking to evade the charge of sentimentality other writers have been sententious offering pseudospiritual comforts such as death being part of a cycle of some sort It is almost a rule these days that in children s literature death has to be presented as life affirming or even life enhancing Beyond all this of course is the reasonable suspicion that killing children is the easiest way for writers to sueeze their readers tear ducts A surprising number of us think that a good cry is an essential part of a good readKnowing all this as she obviously does Sally Nicholls has been either courageous or reckless to write as her first novel the story of a boy who dies of leukaemia And she would seem to have made matters even difficult for herself by writing in the first person which means among other things that her narrator cannot be around to write the last scene Does she get away with it Yes she does She knows what the traps are steps into them and steps out again unscathedIn all first person narratives the voice is obviously everything Sam s is the voice of an unexceptional boy transformed by the enormity of what awaits him and getting it to ring true is a hugely impressive achievement I should mention through gritted teeth that Nicholls was only 23 when she wrote Ways to Live Forever Her publishers have very high hopes for her and on the strength of her debut they seem entirely justified This is an elegant intelligent moving and sometimes even funny book Young readers and brave parents and teachers will love it
