When you’re young, you think you’re invincible, impervious to this thing called death. Stevie was born with diabetes and has had a brush with death before so she knows that it does not discriminate. She and her best friend Sanger are homeschoolers; “normal” homeschoolers meaning they are not super religious or super hippy. Stevie’s somewhat boring life gets interesting when she notices what she thinks may be a dead body in her next-door neighbor’s yard. She was shocked to discover that it was Max Garza, a boy that had cheated death once and planned on cheating it a few more times, 23 to be exact. After a freak accident left him dismembered and friendless, Max is determined to laugh in deaths face and make some new friends along the way. Stevie reluctantly decides to be Max’s accomplice in his quests to beat death. While on his quest, Sanger, Stevie and Max find a reason to live and together they discover the meaning of life in this heartwarming coming of age story.
