A-ZUSTradePaperback2The A to Z game. For Ivo, it’s a way to pass the time, a way to avoid the pain, and a way to think about what really got him here.

His hospice nurse suggested it. Think of a body part for each letter, and think of memories connected to each one. And so begins the revealing of his misspent life: the terrible teenage choices, friendships made and cracked, love he’ll never get back. He remembers the girl who tried to help him, the friend who wouldn’t let her, and the sickness that chases him even now. Refreshing and thought-provoking, The A to Z of You and Me shows the raw unraveling of a life lived loud and hard.

All our choices have consequences. But what happens after?
