The Arizona native and author of Sick, Party, and Manicpixiedreamgirl presents his new teen novel, an exploration of cyberbullying and teen suicide. The book has also been selected by the Arizona Republic as this November's "Republic's Recommends Pick."
Late at night Tori receives a Random phone call. It's a wrong number. But the caller seems to want to talk, so she stays on the line. He asks for a single thing — one reason not to kill himself. The request plunges her into confusion. Because if this Random caller actually does what he plans, he'll be the second person connected to Tori to take his own life. And the first just might land her in jail. After her Facebook page became "Exhibit A" in a tragic national news story about cyberbullying, Tori can't help but suspect the caller is a fraud. But what if he's not? Her words alone may hold the power of life or death. With the clock ticking, Tori has little time to save a stranger — and maybe redeem herself — leading to a startling conclusion that changes everything.
