Pepper's fourteenth birthday is a momentous one. It's the day he's supposed to die. Everyone seems resigned to it--even Pepper, although he would much prefer to live. But can you sidestep Fate? Jump sideways into a different life? Naive and trusting, Pepper sets a course through dangerous waters, inviting disaster and mayhem at every turn, one eye on the sky for fear of angels, one on the magnificent possibilities of being alive. "New York Times" bestselling and Printz Award-winning author Geraldine McCaughrean has created a gripping tale filled with dark humor and daring escapades, where the key to a boy's life lies in facing his own death. Join him on the run--if you can keep up.
