Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: What if you could bring your best friend back to life--but only for a short time? Jamal's best friend, Q, doesn't know that he died, and that he's about to die again. He doesn't know that Jamal tried to save him. And that the reason they haven't been friends for two years is because Jamal blames Q for the accident that killed his parents. But what if Jamal could have a second chance? A new technology allows Q to be reanimated for a few weeks before he dies permanently. And Q's mom is not about to let anyone ruin this miracle by telling Q about his impending death. So how can Jamal fix everything if he can't tell Q the truth?--

    *Starred Review* If you could reanimate a loved one who died tragically, unexpectedly, would you? Reynolds (Opposite of Always, 2019) raises a host of ethical questions while confronting loss and heartbreak head-on in this exceptionally engaging friendship story. Jamal and Quincy were best friends for seven years. Growing up in Ohio, the two Black boys bonded over a love of comedy. Then Jamal's beloved parents died in a car accident when he was 14 and Jamal blamed Q. Q was experiencing his own devastating loss when Jamal abandoned him. Two years later, in the present, they have a blowout argument after which Q drowns—and the novel takes quite a turn. At the hospital, a representative of The Center intercedes and offers to reanimate Q, for a short time, taking him back to his pre-accident self. Q's mother accepts the shocking proposal, but will not allow anyone to tell Q that he died or that his days are limited. The story moves back and forth in time, mostly narrated by Jamal, but Q gets his turn. The vivid, energetic writing reflects two protagonists who enjoy playing with words and enlivens a group of people trying to make Q's final days special, especially Jamal's girlfriend, Autumn, and older sister, Whit, who are supportive but also call out Jamal on his mistakes. This sophomore novel is a virtuoso performance. Grades 8-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
