A Month in the Life

What would you do if you found out one of your classmates was dying? Antsy Bonano, title character of Antsy Does Time, does what any well-intentioned, but slightly odd, friend would do. When he learns Gunner Umlaut is fatally ill, Antsy signs over a month of his own life to his dying friend. The trend catches on and soon the whole town is involved. But even the best intentions can drastically backfire. Fans of Shusterman's quirky Schwa Was Here will enjoy this offbeat companion to the story of the boy who was pretty much invisible. Although it deals with some serious topics, it does so in a lighthearted, almost comedic way. Recommended if you're looking for something out of the ordinary. --AJL
