Product description

“My name is Sam. I am eleven years old. I collect stories and fantastic facts. By the time you read this, I will probably be dead.”

Sam is dying of leukaemia. He hasn’t got forever, so every minute counts. He wants the facts about UFOs and horror movies and airships and ghosts and scientists, and how it feels to kiss a girl. And, most importantly, he wants to know the facts about dying. Can Sam get answers to the questions that nobody will answer – and find a way to live a lifetime in the months that he has left? Winner of the Waterstone’s Children’s Book Prize 2007, this funny, powerful and uplifting novel is a startling look at life in the face of death.

“A hugely impressive achievement… This is an elegant, intelligent, moving and sometimes even funny book.” Mal Peet, Guardian

    This book is amazing , another book like this is Before I Die by Jenny Downham – Although that is rather a bit too advance to I recommend the book for 14 + . However ways to Live Forever 10+ the book was quite hilarious at time for instance when he said Sam N Ella Lol I hope you got the joke . so yeah read the book if you don’t my friend you missing out! =]
