Description

Winner of the Scottish Teenage Book Prize 2019Longlisted for the Branford Boase Award 2018Quick-witted, sharp-tongued Connor Lambert won't take it any longer: the bullying, the secrets, the sympathy.

He's been dying from cancer for years, but he's not dead yet.

He's going down fighting. Forming an unlikely friendship with fellow juvenile delinquent Skeates, the pair stage a break out and set off on a crazy tour across Scotland -- dodging the police, joy riding and extreme partying -- to find Connor's dad, an inmate at Shotts prison.

But Connor's left two things behind -- the medication he needs to keep him alive, and the girl who makes living bearable.

A fresh and bold debut novel full of heart, guts and raw emotion.

Farewell Tour of a Terminal Optimist is a brilliantly funny, thrilling exploration of friendship, identity and mortality populated with witty, sharply drawn characters.
