Kate

by Valerie Sherrard

Dundurn | February 22, 2011 | Trade Paperback

Kate is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Short-listed for the 2005 White Pine Award, for the 2004 IODE Violet Downey National Book Award and commended for the 2004 Canadian Children's Book Centre Our Choice Selection There's one other thing I should mention right off, which is that I'm fourteen years old and dying. (I guess that was two things, but the significance of one is sort of tied to the other, don't you think?) Benchworth Kate Benchworth is far from typical. Having been diagnosed with a brain tumour that could end her life at any time, she views the world with refreshing honesty and rare insight. As her family and members of her community struggle to accept what lies ahead, Kate refuses to give in to self-pity. Determined to live each moment to the fullest, she falls in love with a boy locked up in the local jail and befriends the town recluse. Valerie Sherrard's new novel is a moving tale about a young woman experiencing the best days of her life, all the while aware that the time she has left is rapidly disappearing.
