The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley by Shaun David Hutchinson

This book takes place entirely in a hospital. A teen who lost his entire family in a car crash has made the hospital his home. He has a job, friends, and regular visiting hours with patients.  All he has to do is keep running from Death and he’ll be fine. His piecemeal life is interrupted by the arrival of another teen who has been bullied and burned over half of his body.

This book has intense relationships and an upbeat tempo, while the entire tale takes place under the cloud of looming Death – literally and metaphorically. It is in a hospital after all. Although the story is unique and well written I actually didn’t like this book, not enough changes in scenery for my taste – but you might!
