This is a sweet book about friendship, learning to move forward, and to let go. 100 Days is a very character driven story exploring the lives of three teens, one of whom has progeria and has already lived longer than most people with the condition. Agnes knows that she isn't long for this world, but she worries more about those around her than herself. She's a beautiful character, an

I really loved this book. 100 Days by Nicole McInnes was such an inspiring read.

Three 15-year-olds, all insecure, all facing life’s most difficult challenges, all uncertain as to who they are, who they want to be, and where they are going, all attempt to find their way as best they can.

3.5 stars. I absolutely loved this story about three high school students and the unique connection that is shared between them. I was literally sobbing by the time that I reached the conclusion.

The characters were written with distinctive enough voices that I didn't feel it was necessary to have their names heading each chapter. I found the story quite easy to read. The characters even sound like real teenagers. Which is rather fascinating in YA books, right?

Now this book is probably going to

Boooorrrrriiinnnngggggg.... From the book cover and summary I would've expected this to be some type of bucket list book, but instead, it's just a terminally ill girl and her best friend, and her other kinda best (ish) friend going through a badly plotted out year of school. Moira's really, REALLY annoying. Either you love yourself, or you don't, but don't go fluctuating between the two just so you're in the worst position. Boone. We never really found out why people didn't like Boone. Maybe he ...more

Now, let me tell you that my school library has a wide variety of books of many types and sizes. But while I was looking for a book this one called my name. It had a shiny blue cover I immediately grabbed it off the shelf.
100 days is a book about Agnes, Moira and Boone. Agnes doesn't know it but she only has 100 days to live. When she was just a baby, she was diagnosed with progeria a disease that causes her to age… very fast. An unexpected event brings these three friends together again.

Many thanks to the author and publisher for giving me an advanced copy of 100 Days. McInnes’s second young adult novel is a memorable story about three unique teens. They find themselves as misfits among their classmates, yet the three find solace within their own special friendship. McInnes does an outstanding job of drawing up the characterizations for each of the story’s three main protagonists. Agnes is “the little old lady girl.” She suffers from Progeria, a fatal genetic condition which ca ...more

The wording was moving, the storyline pulls you in, and the characters have so much, well, character. You think by the summary that you know what's coming--Agnes will die in 100 days and she ages at 10x the rate of others--but there is so much depth in the book that even in 387 pages I didn't expect. It's heartbreaking but most inspiring about how we should all live life to the fullest--live as if we had 100 days left to live. Don't hold grudges, keep friends close, and do things for fun because ...more

Ugh, this book was sad. Too sad. Even though we knew the worst kind of ending was coming, I still felt like crap in the morning.

100 Days took me on a road with several potholes, sharp turns, and many beautiful roadside attractions. So many obstacles were thrown in these characters' way, yet they took the damage and kept on. They were bursting with their own personalities and their own quirks. Moira was me in a nutshell, Agnes was lovable, and Boone was stronger and smarter and kinder than everyo
Agnes doesn't know it yet, but she has 100 days left to live. She has progeria--a disease that makes a child's body age way faster than normal (and Agnes, at 16, is lucky to have survived this long). Her best friend, Moira, takes care of her like a bodyguard and a mom, escorting her through the halls so she doesn't get injured and driving her in a special car seat to and from school. But Agnes doesn't want to be coddled. She knows she isn't long for this world, so she wants to live it up, get al ...more

A heartwarming and sweet book I read in 2017 is 100 Days by Nicole McInnes. This story is mainly for realistic fiction lovers, which is one of my favorite genres. I love how the readers get each point of view from Agnes, a frail girl who suffers from a rare disease called Progeria and doesn't know that she only has one hundred days left to live. Moira, Agnes's best friend and protector since they were little, and unlike Agnes, she is big which results in her getting called names. Then we have B ...more

100 Days is about a 16-year-old girl who has already exceeded her life expectancy. Agnes has Progeria, that awful disease that causes children to age at 10 times the normal rate. Agnes looks like a fragile little, old lady and, although she and her friends don’t know it, she only has 100 days to live. Moira is Agnes’ best friend and protector. She was paired with Agnes when they were in elementary school and they have been inseparable ever since. Moira is definitely trying to find herself. She i ...more

This book was a total surprise for me, I went into it without really knowing what it was about, I just went with the initial premise and I have to say I found myself really enjoying it almost from the first chapter.

The book is told from 3 different points of view Agnes, Moira and Boone. And is told in Agnes’s final 100 days on this earth, and before you freak out about that, it is not a spoiler since it is in the description (I checked several times). Each chapter told
As readers will surmise from the book's title, the countdown is on for the three characters, teens whose lives wind around each other in surprising ways. Fifteen-year-old Agnes has progeria, a disease that speeds up the aging process in her body, and while she knows that she won't live to a ripe old age, she has no idea that she has only 100 days left, days that are counted down through her version of the days as well as the glimpses into their own lives that are afforded by Moira, Agnes's best ...more

The story: None of them knows it, but Agnes has only 100 days to live. Moira, her Goth best friend, spends most of her time trying to protect Agnes. Boone, with his dead father and semi-crazy mother, has lots of other things to worry about beside two less-than-perfect girls. But when they forgive him for something bad that happened a long time ago, Boone finds friendship and even love. And Moira finds a way to move on when something expected, but terrible, happens.

Boone, Moira, and Agnes, I want my library to be your safe space. But I'm happy you found the FACS room, instead. Marcy will take care of you.

Moira has spent much of her life protecting Agnes from others. Boone was once their friend, but he made a poor choice in sixth grade that broke the bond. So much is going on in each of their heads, they have trouble seeing each other, but with patience they are able to find common ground again.

100 days by Nicole McInnes started out with two best friends, one, (Moira) who guarded the other, (Agnes) from bullies who made fun of her for her disease. Agnes had Progeria and little did she know, she had 100 days left to live. What I really liked about this book, was that it showed the amazing, and true bond between friends. When Boone came into the friend group, the two girls learned to accept him even though he wasn't nice to them in the past.

Thanks to NetGalley for allowing me to read this book! I enjoyed the unique mix of personalities and identities between the three friends, Agnes, Moria, and Boone. The three young adults balance each other out in every way possible. I found it very interesting the author chose to focus on a young teen with Progeria. I have heard of the disease and find it fascinating. Hearing a story told from the perspective of a teen fighting the sickness was a fresh perspective. In addition, I liked the way t ...more

'100 Days' just seemed to really dig in on the stereotypes of teens, it seemed.
I had trouble feeling sorry for or relating to the characters because of this. I just felt cringey more than anything, but it was still mildly interesting.

100 Days by Nicole McInnes is one of the few books I have read from start to finish. It is a young adult fiction that I enjoyed very much. The story and name of the book is about a girl named Agnes who is going to die in 100 days. The story is told from the perspective of three people. Each of them take turns telling the story for 1 day before moving on to the next person. The three main characters are Agnes, Moira, and Boone. They all have interesting perspectives and signpost moments that aff

On the back of this book it says something along the lines of "three friends have 100 days to do everything that counts." Agnes has progeria, and being almost 16, she's lived longer than most progeria kids have. Moira, her tall, overweight 'protector' best friend has a grudge against Boone, a poor kid whose struggling with anger issues due to his father's rage and untimely death and his mothers complete shutdown from the world. They all used to be friends, but Boone did something stupid in the s ...more

What about the stuff guys are supposed to think and say and do to prove we're manly men, to prove we're in control and strong as iron and fearless? What about the way guys call each other faggot in the hallway if one of them accidentally gets too close to another, or the way I have no choice but to fight whenever some punk decides he wants a piece of me. Refusing to fight makes me look like a pantywaist, and then every other guy on the planet wants to hurt me, too. That's just how it is.”
