Format: Paperback
I picked up my daughter's copy of this book and started reading it. Though intended for children and teenagers, its direct and unashamedly open language make it a very worthwhile read for adults too.

Sally Nichols addresses a very difficult subject in this book - a child's terminal illness - but she overcomes adult fears and reticence by using the frank, matter-of-fact voice of the afflicted child. Through an engaging first person narrative this book explores important questions: What are the priorities for a child who knows he doesn't have long to live? How does he perceive the actions and conversations of the adults around him? In exploring questions like these the book draws the reader into that child's world.

Obviously, this is not a happy, feel-good book, but that's not to say that it's entirely bleak and grim. There is gentle humour scattered throughout the story, and this helps lead the reader towards the (inevitable) conclusion. Essentially, in my view, this book conveys a message that tragedy of this kind cannot be swept away and ignored, but by 'normalising' it through the eyes of a child, it is shown as something that can be faced (just about). Nothing here is trivialised, it is simply expressed as normal for those experiencing it.

A fantastic book, and one whose honesty will be especially appreciated by young readers.

Ways to live forever was my first book that I read of Sally Nicholls and it has got me hooked! The story is about a boy who is terminally ill and makes a list of things he would like to do before he dies. It was an absolute page-turner, I was addicted to this book! Best read ever as it was so in-depth and the emotions of the character seemed very real.

A quick and easy read, an all round OK story but not as detailed as we thought it would be feels like things have been missed/left that would make it a better read.
