Product Details


“Aaron Starmer skillfully welds sharp humor, deep loss, and roaring escapades. Truly the smartest and funniest book about spontaneous combustion you will ever read.” John Green, #1 bestselling author of The Fault In Our Stars

“Wildly inventive.Entertainment Weekly

“A comically surreal novel that will blow your mind.” People magazine

★ “A blood-soaked, laugh-filled, tear-drenched, endlessly compelling read.” Kirkus, starred review

★ “A wholly original YA tale of identity, friendship, love, lust, and gory, grisly death.” SLJ, starred review

“Bursting with heartache and gore, Mara’s narration appeals directly to readers’
senses of horror and humor.” The Horn Book

“Honest and sympathetic in a way that will draw readers into this realistic and slightly horrific read . . . pretty fun.” —VOYA

Darkly absurd.” –Bustle

“Mara’s blunt, sarcastic narration is well-matched to the absurdity of the plot . . . Starmer (the Riverman trilogy) adeptly uses his bloody, madcap premise to heighten just how much of life is out of our control, and how important it is to seize whatever time we’re given.” Publishers Weekly
