Before I Die - Jenny Downham

Before I DieBefore I Die by Jenny Downham

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Before I Die was a heart-wrenching novel that kept my attention really well (which is a huge feat!). I can't even begin to explain how emotionally attached I got to each of the characters and how hard it was to actually finish the book and to just know that it would be over! There were times when I was angry and ecstatic and depressed and nervous all at that same time. A very great read.

I also really enjoyed the way the chapters were broken up. The very personal style of narration was also fantastic. I felt completely pulled into this girl's world. It was very easy to empathize with her. Her emotions and thoughts towards what was happening in her life was very raw and real. Huge credit to the author for being able to tap into that.

I highly recommend this novel for anyone. One of my new favorites.
