Will Weaver turns a lens on Kevinís sister as she collects his surprising effects ó and makes good use of them. Here, in nine stories, we meet people who didnít know Kevin, friends from his childhood, his ex-girlfriend, his best friend, all dealing with the fallout of his death. Being a teenager is a time for all kinds of firsts ó first jobs, first loves, first good-byes, firsts that break your heart and awaken your soul. Itís an initiation of sorts, and it can be brutal. But on the other side of it is the rest of your life. With stories by Chris Barton Nora Raleigh Baskin Marina Budhos Ellen Hopkins A.S. King Torrey Maldonado Charles R. Smith Jr. Will Weaver Rita Williams-Garcia
