Publisher's Summary

Dylan Mint has Tourette's. His life is a constant battle to keep the bad stuff in - the swearing, the tics, the howling dog that seems to escape whenever he gets stressed. But a routine visit to the hospital changes everything. Overhearing a hushed conversation between the doctor and his mum, Dylan discovers that he's going to die in March. So he makes a list of things he must do before he dies: First, he wants to have real sex with gorgeous Michelle Malloy; Second, he's got to find his autistic best friend Amir a new best bud; Third, he's got to get his dad back home from the army so they can say goodbye properly. It's not a long list, but it's ambitious, and he doesn't have much time. Sometimes you've just got to go for it - no holding back - and see what happens....
This is the launch of a major new writing talent. Brian Conaghan makes you travel every step of the way in Dylan's shoes, laughing and crying - often at the same time - as Dylan faces the twists and turns of an unfair world with glorious optimism and wit.

Brilliantly performed

An excellent performance brings this story expertly to life. The trials and tribulations of the teenage Dylan Mint are at times laugh out loud hilarious as he ponders his way through some of the more confusing and strange things adults do. His first person perspective makes the story all the more involving for the listener.

Tourette's for young adults

I was part way through this book when I realised this was really for young adults. (This is a mistake I often make when I respond to special offers and don't bother to check the full details.) Notwithstanding that I found myself enjoying this gentle tale of a young lad with Tourettes living an ordinary life with an extraordinary affliction. The swearing is pretty graphic, as you should expect, but I have a sneaking admiration for the author for maintaining integrity and keeping this in.
The plot progresses fairly predictably and I did think that Dylan came across as somebody younger than 16 years of age. I suppose this can be explained by the fact he has been over protected by his mother. On the whole this tale has a good and humorous heart and a valuable message for young people in helping them understand Tourettes.

Utterly butterly amayonnaising!!!

I mostly listened to this in the park and on the bus, even though this was a bad choice. I kept holding my hand on my mouth to try and strangle the laughs. It was seriously hilarious! And the narration is just perfect! I will absolutely listen to this one again.

wonderful book.

interesting and informative, yet intertaining. well written and worth a read, but if you are a delicate flower and easily offended by swear words look for something else.
