Adam Strand isn't depressed. He's just bored. Disaffected. So he kills himself—39 times. No matter the method, Adam can't seem to stay dead; he wakes after each suicide alive and physically unharmed, more determined to succeed and undeterred by others' concerns. But when his self-contained, self-absorbed path is diverted, Adam is struck by the reality that life is an ever-expanding web of impact and forged connections, and that nothing—not even death—can sever those bonds.

In stark, arresting prose, Gregory Galloway finds hope and understanding in the blackest humor.

This sounds so trippy! And intense!! I’m kind of apprehensive as to the detail that will be revealed with each attempted death…but I do love dark humor so I’m extremely looking forward to this book.

    Definitely intense with the many ways of killing himself and his unsuccessfulness. It sounds very different and intriguing from other YA stories.

    Yes! I’ve seen this and I definitely have some mixed feelings about it. I’m a little cautious when it comes to suicide. But I’m also intrigued by the summary, so I’m just hoping the attempts aren’t too detailed. Otherwise, it looks smart, intense, moving, and unique. I’ll be checking it out. Thanks for sharing! :-)
