Summary
When Pierre Anton declares that nothing has meaning and leaves school, his seventh grade classmates, in an attempt to convince him otherwise, begin a collection of items that hold meaning for them. As each student is forced to give up their something special, they exact revenge upon one another and demand that every contribution become more macabre than the last.
Critique
Unputdownable reading. Part coming of age, part reflection on meaning, this book will shock, startle, and inspire. Translated from the Danish. This was a 2011 Printz Honor Book.
