Antsy Does Time

by Neal Shusterman

Antsy Bonano, narrator of The Schwa Was Here, is back with another crazy tale. This time, Antsy signs a month of his life over to his "dying" classmate Gunnar Umlaut. Soon everyone at school follows suit, giving new meaning to the idea of "living on borrowed time." But does Gunnar really have six months to live, or is news of his imminent death greatly exaggerated? And when a family member suffers a heart attack after donating two years to Gunnar, Antsy starts to wonder if he has tempted fate by trying to play God . . . .

Antsy Does Time

by Neal Shusterman

It was a dumb idea, but one of those dumb ideas that accidentally turns out to be brilliant-which, I've come to realize, is much worse than being dumb. My name's Antsy Bonano-but you probably already know that-and unless you got, like, memory issues, you'll remember the kid named the Schwa, who I told you about last time. Well, now there's this other kid, and his story is a whole lot stranger. It all started when Gunnar Ümlaut and I were watching three airborne bozos struggle with a runaway parade balloon. That's when Gunnar tells me he's only got six months to live. Maybe it was because he said he was living on borrowed time, or maybe it was just because I wanted to do something meaningful for him, but I gave him a month of my life . . . . . . And that's when things began to get seriously weird. From the Compact Disc edition.

Bruiser

by Neal Shusterman

Tennyson: Don't get me started on the Bruiser. He was voted "Most Likely to Get the Death Penalty" by the entire school. He's the kid no one knows, no one talks to, and everyone hears disturbing rumors about. So why is my sister, BrontË, dating him? One of these days she's going to take in the wrong stray dog, and it's not going to end well. BrontË: My brother has no right to talk about Brewster that way--no right to threaten him. There's a reason why Brewster can't have friends--why he can't care about too many people. Because when he cares about you, things start to happen. Impossible things that can't be explained. I know, because they're happening to me. Award-winning author Neal Shusterman has crafted a chilling and unforgettable novel about the power of unconditional friendship, the complex gear workings of a family, and the sacrifices we endure for the people we love.
