Would you listen to Spoonface Steinberg again? Why?
I listened to this with my 11 year old son and his friend. We were all captivated by the story and the bravery of the child who is terminally ill. Seeing the world through her eyes was a revelational moment for two boys in the rudest of health. They could not leave the car until the story ended!
Who was your favorite character and why?
We all loved the lady who helps in the Steinbergs house. She was there for spoonface, non judgemental and warm at all times.
Which character – as performed by Becky Simpson – was your favourite?
Spoonface - the dominant character in the story
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
An unforgettable story of life as seen through the eyes of a dying child
Any additional comments?
A must listen to book. Just loved it

Modern classic radio play
This is one if my all time favorite radio plays, and I have been trying to get it on digital for quite a few years. It is a heartbreaking account of a terminally ill young girl told through her eyes, about how she makes peace with her predicament through listening to beautiful operas. It may sound like a very tough going subject, but it contains such moving thoughts accompanied by the hauntingly beautiful music of Maria callas, that you will smile with joy as much as cry by the time it finishes. I cannot recommend this enough, it is an absolute joy to have this in my collection, worth joining audible just to hear it again, 11 out of 10
