Being optimistic doesn't come naturally to Grace Manning, especially not these days. Her family life has just been turned upside down, and things are getting weird with her best friend, Eric. But at least she's happy at her after-school job at a nursing home, thanks to Mr. Sands, a resident with Lou Gehrig's disease who keeps up with Grace's sarcasm, teaches her how to cheat at poker, and even lets her give him a Mohawk.

And then one day, Mr. Sands asks Grace to help him die. Surely he doesn't mean for her, a 15-year-old smartass, to take him seriously? But he does, and she can't bring herself to tell anyone. Grace tries everything from praying for a miracle cure to stuffing herself with pancakes, but she knows she can't run from this decision forever.

Former stand-up comedian Robin Epstein has written a thought-provoking debut young-adult novel, with all the romantic complications and attitude of the movie Juno. Download and start listening now!

    " A gripping story about a teenage girl who finds herself facing some very difficult decisions. Grace Manning works at a local nursing home as a candy striper. Working in such a dismal environment is difficult but one particular patient makes this job not only only bearable but actually enjoyable. Mr. Sands has an amazing sense of humor which helps Grace deal with the divorce of her parents and the loss it has created in her life. This novel touches on many aspects and difficulties that many of the elderly face. Robin Epstein does an amazing job of sharing this heart wrenching story of a dieing man, divorce, and difficult decisions. "

    " I found this surprisingly good, given all the praying that goes on... (and really, why was I surprised there was praying in a book with God in the title, hmmm?) I found the situation novel and affecting and not at all beyond the realm of possibility. I though Grace was very real, and her missteps on the road to love were achingly believable. The set-up with Mr. Sands was quite moving, albeit a bit "out there" in terms of probability. There was a lot going on in this book, and Epstein kept me involved right up to the end. "

    " I had the audio version of this book and it was pretty good. I think the book was a good mix of age-appropriate problems and facing a huge, scary, life altering problem as well. I gave it three stars because unlike some YA novels, it didnt haunt me or beg me to pick it up and not put it down. But it was a good read. "
