Description
Living through the last stages of leukemia, Sam wants to know facts. Facts about UFO's, ghosts, airships, what it feels like to kiss a girl. Sam is full of questions that nobody wants to answer, and he doesn't have much time left. In the multiple hanky tradition of classic tearjerkers, this moving and ultimately uplifting account of a boy's final months is impossible to read with a dry eye. Written as a collection of journal entries, lists, questions, and photographs, Sam's story answers one question on its own: What matters most when every minute counts?
