The inspiring and life-enhancing memoir of the nineteen-year-old cystic fibrosis sufferer who was the subject of two highly-praised Channel 4 documentaries: A Boy Called Alex in 2008 and A Passion for Life in 2009.
Alex was a music scholar at Eton College and took his A levels in 2008. He is now a choral scholar at King's College, Cambridge, where he is reading music. He lives with his family in Kent and this is his first book.

I would guess Alex's cheerfulness was a quite conscious piece of defiance. - IndependentAlex s final thumbs-up as he took his curtain call expressed the sheer exhilarating joy in being alive. - Times Online
