Meet the a-mayonnaise-ing Dylan Mint. He’s sixteen and he’s got Tourette’s. His life is a constant fight to keep the bad stuff in his mouth, the tics, the growling, howling dog that tries to escape whenever he’s stressed. A routine visit to the hospital turns Dylan’s whole life topsy-turvy when he discovers that he’s going to die next March. It’s only August, but still – he has things to do. So he makes a list – Cool Things To Do Before I Cack It – and sets out to make his wishes come true.

It’s only when Apple meets someone more lost than she is, that she begins to see things as they really are.

When sixteen-year-old Zoey is marked by the Tracker, she knows her old life is over. Now she has to leave her friends and family to join the House of Night school, where there’s only one subject Zoey needs to study: Vampyre 101. Of course, there’s always a catch, and this one’s nice and simple: if you fail, you die…
