    Fourteen-year-old Charlie Law has lived in Little Town, on the border with Old Country, all his life. He knows the rules: no going out after dark; no drinking; no litter; no fighting. You don't want to get on the wrong side of the people who run Little Town. When he meets Pavel Duda, a refugee from Old Country, the rules start to get broken. Then the bombs come, and the soldiers from Old Country, and Little Town changes forever.

    Bobby Seed has questions. What's another word for 'thesaurus'? How can I tell Bel I want her as my girl friend, not my girlfriend? How much pain is Mum in today? Has she taken her pills? And sometimes, secretly, Why us? Bobby's little brother, Danny, has questions, too. Will Bobby let him have Rice Krispies for dinner? And can he stay up late on the computer? And why won't Mum's stupid illness just go away? But it's Mum's question for Bobby that could turn everything on its head. It's the Big One. The Unthinkable One. If Bobby agrees, he won't just be soothing her pain. He'll be helping to end it. Would he? Could he?

    Dylan Mint has Tourette's. His life is a constant battle to keep the bad stuff in - the swearing, the tics, the howling dog that seems to escape whenever he gets stressed. But a routine visit to the hospital changes everything. Overhearing a hushed conversation between the doctor and his mum, Dylan discovers that he's going to die in March. So he makes a list of things he must do before he dies: First, he wants to have real sex with gorgeous Michelle Malloy; Second, he's got to find his autistic best friend Amir a new best bud; Third, he's got to get his dad back home from the army so they can say goodbye properly.

    Dylan ist 16 und leidet an Tourette. "Mr Dog" nennt er seine Krankheit, denn völlig unvorhergesehen fängt er laut an zu bellen oder zu fluchen. Verliebt ist Dylan in Michelle Malloy, die einen Klumpfuß hat und trotzdem purer Sex auf zwei Beinen ist. Eines Tages ist Dylan mit seiner Mutter mal wieder beim Arzt. Aus für ihn eindeutigen Wortfetzen reimt sich Dylan zusammen, dass er sterben muss. Schnell überlegt er sich drei Dinge, die er vorher unbedingt erledigen muss - doch dann stellt sich heraus, dass alles ganz anders ist. Total anders.
