Sammie ist klug, selbstbewusst und hat nur ein Ziel: den besten Schulabschluss machen und ihrer Heimatstadt so schnell wie moglich den Rucken kehren. Ware da nicht diese unheilbare Krankheit, die ihr - so sagen die Arzte - nach und nach alle Erinnerungen rauben wird. Doch Sammie will sie festhalten: die Erinnerung an Stuart und ihren ersten Kuss. An Maddie und den groen Streit. Und an Cooper, der wie kein anderer Sammie zum Lachen bringt. Sammie schreibt, um eins niemals zu vergessen: dass sie ihr Leben gelebt hat, bis zum Schluss.
