How can a pint-sized, smart-ass eighteen-year-old make his mark on the world from Nowheresville, Idaho—especially when he only has one year left to do it? When Ben Wolf learns his senior year of high school will be his last year, period, he is determined to go out in a blaze of glory.

That means not letting anyone know about his diagnosis. It means trying out for the football team. It means giving his close-minded civics teacher a daily migraine. It means going for the amazingly perfect, fascinating Dallas Suzuki.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What would you do if you knew you were dying? Ben Wolf finds out he has a year to live. He says no to treatment that would leave him sick and bald and probably not with much more time. He says no to telling his family and friends. He wants a normal year. He wants to try out for football and go after the girl he has loved from afar. This book was on a lot of best of lists for 2007 and it was quite good. Things don't go exactly as Ben planned and they go exactly as you as a reader think either which is a good thing. I really enjoyed it.
