It was a dumb idea, but one of those dumb ideas that accidentally turns out to be brilliant—which, I’ve come to realize, is much worse than being dumb. My name’s Antsy Bonano—but you probably already know that—and unless you’ve got, like, memory issues, you’ll remember the kid named the Schwa, who I told you about last time. Well, now there’s this other kid, and his story is a whole lot stranger. It all started when Gunnar Ümlaut and I were watching three airborne bozos struggle with a runaway parade balloon. That’s when Gunnar tells me he’s only got six months to live. Maybe it was because he said he was living on borrowed time, or maybe it was just because I wanted to do something meaningful for him, but I gave him a month of my life…

…And that’s when things began to get seriously weird.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben Crowder | 2/17/2014

    " Great book. Very funny like The Schwa Was Here, but with more serious undertones (and that's a good thing). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tomas J | 2/12/2014

    " Good follow up after 'The Schwa was Here'. Although Calvin Schwa is not part of the plot anymore, he is replaced by a new outsider, Gunner. An interesting idea to make a terminally ill person to feel better by 'buying time' for them. Worth reading. I recommend "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammi | 2/10/2014

    " Very funny, very deep. Neal Shusterman is a genius! "

    " Another teen book. Adam read it as well and enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Ball | 1/16/2014

    " Antsy (Anthony) Bonano has got to be one of my favorite characters ever! This time, Antsy's new friend Gunnar Umlaut tells him that he has a progressive lung disease and has six months to live. Antsy impulsively decides to give him a certificate for one month of his life, and starts a tidal wave of gifts of time through his school. Antsy also starts dating Gunnar's sister, the gorgeous Swedish goddess Kjersten, finds out some difficult things about the Umlaut family, creates a replica of the Dust Bowl in the Umlaut's backyard (and decimates the surrounding neighborhood lawns due to an overdose of weed killer), and becomes famous for an ice water incident with a rude customer at Paris Capische, the French/Italian fusion restaurant his parents own with Lexie's grandfather, Old Man Crawley. Funny and thoughtful at the same time, this one shows off Neal Shusterman's creativity and style. Loved it! 7th grade and up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Avinashr | 12/13/2013

    " I thought the plot of the book was not tat good. I was stiill inspired to read the book to figure the biggest cliff hanger. It turned out to be a great book after all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krissy | 11/15/2013

    " I just love this main character, Anthony Bonano. The author again reads the story in this sequel to "The Schwa Was Here". It is laugh out loud funny to me. Not classsic lit, by any means, but very entertaining and amusing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 IanGB | 10/28/2013

    " Great book with a perfect mix of drama and comedy. Neal Shusterman outdid himself with this companion to The Schwa Was Here. If you like teen fiction that is relatable and funny, Antsy Bonano is the Brooklynite for you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 5/20/2013

    " I love how shusterman does fiction! this book is compassionate and bizzare all at once. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julia Driscoll | 4/13/2012

    " hysterical, heartbreaking, heartwarming - a must read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandra | 1/18/2012

    " I love how Shusterman incorporated characters from The Schwa Was Here without seeming contrived. The characters and situations kept me enthralled throughout. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele | 10/2/2011

    " Shusterman is clever and funny with his characters. Though I saw the truth of the major plot point the moment it was stated by one of the characters in the first chapter, it was still a fun ride to see how it all played out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jolene | 6/4/2011

    " Shusterman just has great voice! I actually listened to this on CD. It was the author reading, and he really captured Antsy's voice and character. Shusterman is rising to the top of my favorite author list! "

    " this book was easy with few challenging words. but it was so funny and enjoyable that even with a higher reading level it is one of the best books i have read in many months "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cinda | 3/28/2009

    " I'd never read Schusterman before. This book was "assigned" as part of a writing retreat, and I enjoyed being introduced to this character. Schusterman deals with rather serious issues in a humorous, engaging way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suey | 10/7/2008

    " I liked this even better than the Schwa book. I've completely fallen in love with Antsy. And Neal Shusterman I suppose! "
