DEADLINE by Chris Crutcher

Ben begins to become more involved with friends and school after finding out that he is terminally ill. Now, he just has to tell everyone.

This book shows how stressful high school can be and it puts a different face on illness and death. It shows that it's easier to tell the truth than lie.

Ben Wolf, a senior in high school, has been diagnosed with a rare blood disease. Against his doctor's advice, he chooses to forego treatment and instead decides to live his life as normally as possible, instead of undergoing the treatment that would leave him sick and bald and prolong his life for only a couple more months. Ben is determined to leave his mark on life and he's willing to take some risks in the little time he has left.

This book makes you think about life, how to value it while you have it.
