From AudioFile:

Sam, who is only 11, has leukemia. His mother cries a lot, and his father is in denial, but Sam doesn't hesitate to ask hard questions as he faces the end of his latest course of treatment. Mostly, he tries to keep living life instead of waiting for death. This is a first-person point of view story with collections of lists, assorted oddball facts, and poignant, often-funny, observations. Charlotte Parry does a wonderful job with the Brit-accented lads Sam and his querulous friend Felix, who wants to blow something up rather than go quietly into that good night. This is no sad end-of-life tale but rather a gripping how-to-live-forever quest. Parry makes us wish Sam's voice could be with us at least that long. M.C.C.
