Genre: YA thriller
For sixteen-year-old Alex Tanner, finding a webpage about himself five years into the future is totally awesome and all until he logs on one morning and his status reads: DECEASED.
It rolled off their tongues, sliding out before they even realized it was said. It was a simple word—so perfectly innocent and commonplace. Perhaps Alex Tanner shouldn’t have let it bother him. Perhaps he should’ve just kept his head down and let it go. It wasn’t like his father’s death was their faults. But in just a day, he’d heard “Sorry” so often that it was almost meaningless—and freaking annoying.
In reality, maybe it wasn’t the word that bothered Alex so much. Maybe it was the thought behind it that bothered him. By muttering a simple “sorry,” they thought they could make it all better. They thought everything would magically fall into place. Well, here’s some news for them: It never did.
