Eighteen-year-old Eric deals with the loss of his older brother Duane by meeting three of the seven recipients of Duane's organs a year after his death, and pondering who they are to him, and he to them.
When his older brother, Duane, dies, 18-year-old Eric gets in touch with three recipients of Duane's organs to avoid the vast emptiness his death left behind. Duane was Eric's closest friend, opening Eric's mind with his intense, sometimes silly, philosophical statements, and living life in a distinctly different way from their fractured family. Slowly, Phil, Barry, and Melinda each become part of Eric's life, helping him retain a sense of family and closeness. Dark, humorous, and witty, this sequel to ICEMAN takes place four years later. Chris Lynch is also the author of INEXCUSABLE, a 2005 National Book Award finalist.
