Description
Distraught and lonely, Leonard Peacock intends to celebrate his 18th birthday by shooting his former best friend, Asher Beal and then himself. First though, Peacock sets out to give gifts to four people who made his life a little better, including a teacher, a violin prodigy classmate, an attractive teen evangelist, and a neighbor who likes film noir. There's still time for the young man to reconsider, but Peacock will need a lot of help to come to terms with the traumas that have set him on this course. Praised by School Library Journal for its "masterful writing," this thoughtful and creative novel for readers 14 and up is by the author of The Silver Linings Playbook, source of the Academy Award–winning film.

"Quick is most interested in Leonard's psychology, which is simultaneously clear and splintered, and his voice, which is filled with brash humor, self-loathing, and bucket loads of refreshingly messy contradictions, many communicated through Leonard’s footnotes to his own story. It may sound bleak, but it is, in fact, quite brave, and Leonard's interspersed fictional notes to himself from 2032 add a unique flavor of hope."—Booklist

"Books like Quick's are necessary.... We should be grateful for a book that gets kids, and the leaders they'll become, thinking about the problem now."—NYTimes
