“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 second counts. He wants to know about UFOs and horror movies and airships and ghosts and scientists, and how it feels to kiss a girl. And because he won’t be here for long, he also needs to know the facts about dying. What he wants are answers to the questions that nobody will answer – and a way to live a lifetime in the months that he has left. Winner of the Waterstone’s Children’s Book Prize, this simple and moving story from a remarkable young talent is a startling look at life in the face of death.
