What would you do if you found out that you were poisoned? Well the main character, Ted, in this book lived his life as best as he could in 24 hours when he found out that he was poisoned. After eating with his friends, Mark and Nikki, at their favorite cafe, Ted became very ill and began to vomit. Soon after Ted left the cook of the cafe that had just been fired came to the cafe and claimed that he had poisoned some of the food and whoever ate it only had 24 hours to live. Now instead of calling his parents or going to the hospital,after Mark and Nikki told him what the cook had said back at the cafe, they wrote out a list of 10 things Ted should or needed to do before he passed away. Some things such as: lose virginity, party with favorite band, etc.Ted isn't the most adventurous teen and spent most of his time in his room with his guitar, so that is why the 10 items on the list are so far out there and may seem impossible for a teenager to achieve, but you will be amazed at what Ted can and does do. Being poisoned changes Ted's life. I'm not sure what I would do if I was poisoned, probably end up going to the hospital but I think the author had a point to the story. Maybe, dont just sit there and let life pass you by, acheive all of your goals and dreams in life and experience life to it's fullest. I would definitly recommend this book as a good read.

What would you do if you know your about to die?, and just to make things worst than what they were you been poison and you have 24 hours to live. That's just crazy. Well here is Ted with his friends Mark and Nikki. while ey were eating fries Daniel one of the ex workers told them that he had poisen his fries. There was tha time were Ted and Nikki and Mark had this crazy idea about a list with 10 thing Ted should do before he dies. As Ted began to feel dizy and vomit more often, Mark and Nikki decide to do a list. They stared by Ted first most wanted thing. . Lose my virginity, yea the was the number one in the list. Nikki wisent converse that Ted wisent able to do it. Ted was the type of guy that always wished to lose his virginity to someone the will truly love him. He was thinking on Rachel his girlfriend. Ted didn't want to tell Rachel about his problem, who would? That's something that you will never wish to hear from someone you love so much. Jam and party with Shakes the Clown, this was the 2nd in the list and they did party with them. I guess that they haven't party like they did that time Ted even went to play with them. That was for Ted one of the more amazing things that he have done in his all life. Ted was usually in his room, his parents just pass there time traveling. They didn't have much time for him. When Ted realize that he wasn't going to survive in the conditions he was in to. He just wanted to end everything and go to Africa to die apart from the people that he know. Over the entire story was one of the best that I have read. I enjoy to the fullest. I strongly recommend reading this story is just really fun to read. You just wasn't to keep reading.

It's nice to finally get a break from the shallow teen books such as the Gossip Girl series this book was able to keep my interest without the unnecisary cursing and sex and it was amazingly funny
