(Arthur A. Levine Books)
"A deep, dense book full of contrasts between light and dark, and rich in religious and mythological symbol . . .the literary rewards are greatly satisfying." --Jennifer Hubert (Amazon.com)
Keegan Flannery was born a twin though his brother Michael did not survive birth. Now, two weeks before his sixteenth birthday, he has a dream about his own death. Understanding that Michael was supposed to have lived, and it was he who was meant to have died, Keegan sets out to right all the wrongs by planning his own suicide. But in the final weeks before his 16th birthday and his last day on earth, life intercedes in the plan: Keegan joins the wrestling team and begins a dialogue with his father, one that may just be enough to change Keegan's ideas about confession, penance, and life.
