What it's about:
Sam is 11 years old and he suffers from leukaemia. His doctor and family decide to give up on chemotherapy because they discovered that his case of leukaemia can't be cured. After his school teacher (he's home-schooled) tells them to work on their writing skills 1 day, he decides to write a book.
His best friend and only classmate, Felix gives him great ideas and helps him accomplish the things on Sam's 'to-do-list'. However, Felix has cancer and is as unstable as Sam health-wise. Felix is determined to make the most of life while he still has it, and he tells Sam to reach for his dreams and that nothing impossible.
This is the story of a boy who knows all about death and knows that it's coming for him. But that doesn't stop him from living his life and achieving what normal, healthy kids don't have the drive to do.
Felix dies in the middle of the book and that means Sam is left to fend for himself. Sam dies in the end too. It's a sad but unavoidable ending.
What I think:
When I first borrowed the book, I knew it was gonna be sad because it said so on the cover. But it really is touching. Sam does his best to be independant and knowing that his time is coming only pushes him to achieve his goals. I like his family too. The author really makes it seem like a true story that a real little boy suffering from leukaemia wrote. And she's only 22 years old! Sam really makes you take a look at life and wonder what the hell you've accomplished in it. This book is best read when you're alone and un-interrupted.

Camp sucks. People suck. Everything sucks! I'm being emo so just ignore me. Hahahahaha.....
I'm gonna write about what I'm doing now. I'm playing Guess-the-sketch on Facebook. Some girl just called me a cow. I don't know why. Maybe because I keep winning. I called her a goat. She just asked if I'm a boy or a girl. I get this question a lot. I told her I'm a girl and she says I look a lot like a boy. I said that's 'cause I have short hair and boyish features. A guy just said I'm a ladyboy. I just laughed. Haha.
I won again. People are getting pissed. I'm gonna let others win. I'll do something else while waiting. I'm writing this post. Now the guy that called me a ladyboy has finally won. I'm glad. A lot of Malays playing now.
Why is no one online? I'm bored. Hence, this post. I'm blabbering about nothing. Lalalalala..... How pathetic. I'm still going to post this post though.
Now there are cheaters all over. Reminds me of Sick. Spelling all the time. I'm going offline now. To read Brisingr. Chrissy, did you know that it's pronounced BRISS-ing-ger. I didn't know that until my bro mentioned it and I checked the pronounciation. Oh well, bye!
