Summary
Annotation - A darkly funny and spectacularly original exploration of friendship, goodbyes-and spontaneous combustion. Mara Carlyle's senior year at Covington High in suburban New Jersey is going on as normally as could be expected, until the day-wa-bam!-fellow senior Katelyn Ogden explodes during third period pre-calc. Katelyn is the first, but she won't be the last senior to explode without warning or explanation. The body count grows and the search is on for a reason-Terrorism! Drugs! Homosexuality! Government conspiracy!-while the seniors continue to pop like balloons. Mara narrates the end of their world as she knows it with tell-it-like-it-is insight as she tries to make it to graduation in one piece through an explosive year punctuated by romance, quarantine, lifelong friendship, hallucinogenic mushrooms, bloggers, ice cream trucks, “Snooze ButtonTM,” Bon Jovi, and the filthiest language you've ever heard the President of the United States use over Skype
Summary
