Reviews

Review, NYTBR, October 14, 2007: "This may sound too depressing for words, but it is only one indication of the inspired originality of Before I Die, by Jenny Downham, that the reader can finish its last pages feeling thrillingly alive ... I don't care how old you are. This book will not leave you." --John Burnham Schwartz Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, September 1, 2007 "Lucid language makes a painful journey bearable, beautiful and transcendent." Starred Review, Publisher's Weekly, August 6, 2007 "The eloquent dying teen can seem a staple of the YA novel, but this British debut completely breaks the mold. Downham holds nothing back in her wrenching and exceptionally vibrant story." Review, Entertainment Weekly, September 21, 2007 "Bound For Glory: This fall, five young authors deliver breakout books packed with razor-sharp writing." Review, Entertainment Weekly, September 28, 2007 "In luminous prose that rings completely true, Downham earns every tear she wrings from her readers. I trust there will be many of them--many readers, and of course, many tears. A-" From the Hardcover edition.
