Farewell Tour of a Terminal Optimist
Also available as: eBook
Side effects may include:
Compulsion to travel, inappropriate laughter, rethinking your life.
I don't want to be remembered as Cancer Kid. I want to be remembered for something else -- anything else.
That's the reason for this crazy road trip. I'd be having the time of my life if:
-- I had any money
-- Emma was with me (not headcase Skeates)
--I hadn't forgotten the meds that keep me alive
But don't worry. I'll find out the truth about my dad before I snugg it. I have to. Just call me terminally optimistic.
"A bold and brilliant debut" -- Keith Gray
