Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: 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 Button™,” Bon Jovi, and the filthiest language you've ever heard the President of the United States use over Skype.
