Description:
This modern-day Lord of the Flies is a haunting existential novel, both award-winning and and provocative. Now in paperback as part of the Atheneum Collection! Nothing matters. From the moment you are born, you start to die. The Earth is 4.6 billion years old. You ll live to be a maximum of one hundred. Life isn t worth the bother! So says Pierre Anthon when he decides there is no meaning to life, leaves his seventh-grade classroom, climbs a plum tree, and stays there. His friends and classmates cannot get him to come down, not even by pelting him with rocks. So to prove to him that there is a meaning to life, they set out to give up things of importance, challenging one another to make increasingly serious sacrifices. The pile is started with a lifetime s collection of Dungeons & Dragons books, a fishing rod, a pair of green sandals, a pet hamster but then, as each demand becomes more extreme, events take a morbid twist. And what if, after all these sacrifices, the pile is still not meaningful enough to bring Pierre Anthon down?'
