Publisher's Summary

Fifteen-year-old Jackie Stone's father is dying. When Jackie discovers that her father has been diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor, her whole world starts to crumble. She can't imagine how she'll live without him.

Then, in a desperate act to secure his family's future, Jackie's father does the unthinkable - he puts his life up for auction on eBay. Jackie can do nothing but watch and wait as an odd assortment of bidders, some with nefarious intentions, drive the price up higher. The fate of her entire family hangs in the balance. But no one can predict how the auction will finally end or any of the very public fallout that ensues. Life as Jackie knows it is about to change forever....

In this brilliantly written tragicomedy told through multiple points of view - including Jackie's dad's tumor - acclaimed author Len Vlahos deftly explores what it really means to live.

    "Disappointment"

    The overall idea was interesting, but the story actually fell flat. I was hoping it would ramp up and end with an unexpected conclusion, but it did not.
    As for the narration, sometimes a reader can really make you feel as if many different people are reading. This was not the case for this book.
