Lucky Few

The life of homeschooler Stevie Hart gets all shook up when she meets a strange boy, Max, who survived a freak near-fatal accident and is now obsessed with death. He enlists her and her best friend, Sanger, to help him complete his absurd "23 Ways to Fake My Death Without Dying" checklist. What starts off as fun begins spiraling downward when Stevie's diabetes sabotages her fumbling romance with Max, Sanger announces she's moving out of state, and then death -- real death -- cuts close to home.

In the tradition of Me and Earl and the Dying Girl comes a hilarious, madcap, and quirky debut novel about a group of oddball teens struggling to find themselves when facing their own mortality.

"Ormsbee gives readers a sweet, believable romance without weakening the bond between the best girlfriends. Against the backdrop of their fake death checklist, which takes them all over Austin, the three teens explore friendship, romance, activism, and their own mortality. Sharing fears stemming from near-death experiences, Stevie understands Max's need to face his own anxieties around death. However, when her diabetes leads to another brush with death, Stevie begins to question their project. This quirky novel brings humor, relatable characters, and an inside look into the world of homeschoolers." — Genevieve Feldman, School Library Journal
