Publisher's Summary

Walking around New York City was what Mitty Blake did best. He loved the city, and even after 9/11, he always felt safe. Mitty was a carefree guy - he didnt worry about terrorists or blackouts or grades or anything, which is why he was late getting started on his Advanced Bio report. Mitty does feel a little pressure to hand something in. If he doesnt, he'll be switched out of Advanced Bio, which would be unfortunate since Olivia's in Advanced Bio. So he considers it good luck when he finds some old medical books in his familys weekend house that focus on something he could write about. But when he discovers an old envelope with two scabs in one of the books, the report is no longer about the's about life and death. His own.

Amazing book!

The only thing I disliked-being a teenage girl-was that Mitty and Olivia never dated. The last thing to happen with them was a confession of love by Olivia, that's it. It was disappointing that Mitty never told her why he didn't return gratitude. I had to read this book for school, hate reading, and I had not read a thing even though I had a test over the book so adioble helped me by fib nudging the book in a day and not having to read it myself.
