If I live forever, I can live now
1st BOOK OF THE "FOREVER" SERIES. Tessa is a wishful and overly anxious medical student that hasn't been able to be herself since her best friend Nora died of cancer. So, when she is assigned to carry out a research project, she immediately knows what she will look into. However, soon, the crossovers between cancer and immortality begin to haunt her, and she finds herself turning her project into a maddening fight to make sure nobody will ever die again. On the road to immortality, she meets Luke, an apparently careless but fascinating student in her research group, who mysteriously disappears after Tessa's revolutionary project is stolen by a big pharmaceutical enterprise. Tessa finds herself lost and alone in a world where everything is changing because of her, but she can't change anything. She is forced to ask herself questions she never really wanted to find an answer to: Even if we escape death, is escaping time and forgetting still impossible? Are we ruthlessly condemned? Or does our final sentence actually save us from the disastrous consequences our wishes would have?
