Recensioner i media
"Dealing frankly with teenage life, Before I Die will be the year's most talked-about novel." * The Sunday Times * "A novel that won't fail to touch those who read it...A book that will make you happy to be alive *****" * Heat * "Fierce, bold and bright...Jenny Downham is capable of exquisite, almost fevered writing, but she's also a master of pace, slowly establishing a heroine so brimful of life that it is wrenching to endure the attritions of the final pages" * Observer * "Downham has not only eschewed mawkishness, but has managed to convey real feeling. Her heroine - angry, funny and occasionally irrational - positively leaps off the page...This is a thoughtful, and sometimes painful, exploration of what it feels like to say goodbye to life before you have had a chance to live it." * The Times *
