And now, even though hes dead, hes not really gone. Even now his choices are touching the people he left behind. Rita Williams-Garcia follows one aimless teen as he finds a new life in his new job-at the mortuary. Ellen Hopkins reveals what two altar boys (and one altar girl) might get up to at the cemetery at night. Will Weaver turns a lens on Kevins sister as she collects his surprising effects-and makes good use of them. Here, in nine stories, we meet people who didnt know Kevin, friends from his childhood, his ex-girlfriend, his best friend, all dealing with the fallout of his death. Being a teenager is a time for all kinds of firsts-first jobs, first loves, first good-byes, firsts that break your heart and awaken your soul. Its an initiation of sorts, and it can be brutal. But on the other side of it is the rest of your life.With stories byChris BartonNora Raleigh BaskinMarina BudhosEllen HopkinsA.S. KingTorrey MaldonadoCharles R.
