There is no delicate way to tell a person that he is holding a container full of the incinerated remains of his own body.
"I'm not sure I can do this anymore."
"This. Exist. Be here like this with everything so #@$%ed up."
"Hey, Travis? I don't think it really matters if you know how to exist."
"What do you mean?"
"I don't think any of us do."
"Then what are we doing?"
"I don't know. We're just meandering."
I'd seen one, a meteor. It was yellow - maybe gold, even - and it streaked right across the sky. Younger kids would have called it a shooting star. But we'd reached that age where the science behind it mattered, where the wonders of the universe needed to be further explained to mesmerize us. But still, it was beautiful and, even though this sounds weird, it made me feel really tiny and insignificant. And I liked that. Maybe I wasn't supposed to, but I did. (168)

SummaryAdd a Summary
Travis thought it would be a "dream come true" to be brought back to life cancer-free. Going to high school when his ex-soul mate, Cate, and ex-best friend, Kyle, have moved on with their lives - making him a thing of the past - is a bit of a nightmare though!
