Westing is not your typical school. For starters, you have to have one very important quality in order to be admitted—you have to be dying. Every student at Westing has been diagnosed with PPV, or the Peter Pan Virus. No one is expected to live to graduation.

What do you do when you go to a school where no one has a future? Noah Falls, his girlfriend Alice, and his best friend Marty spend their time drinking, making out, and playing video games on But when an older boy named Zach (who Noah may or may not be in love with) invites Noah and Marty to join his secret Polo Club, the lives of both boys change as they struggle to find meaning in their shortened existence.

With an innovative format that includes interstitial documents, such as flyers, postcards, and handwritten notes, Away We Go is a funny, honest look at first love and tragic heartbreak. For fans of Grasshopper Jungle and Noggin.

Why Am I Excited? 

First off, this cover is just so eye catching and GORGEOUS. Also, this just has such an interesting concept. You have to be dying to get into this school? I've never read anything like that so this one is sure to be a unique experience! It also seems that it will have an interesting format (with the flyers, postcards, and notes) which is something I am a total sucker for. I love books that have something a little different and unique about them! It usually makes them quick reads too so I am super excited for this one. I don't think it is on many people's radar so if it wasn't prior to this post, I hope you are now excited for it as well!

Are you looking forward to this one? Which book are you waiting on this Wednesday?


  1. I got an ARC of this without having heard much about it, but I'm also very excited to get around to reading it. Great choice! :)

  2. This one sounds really great! I adore the cover. I think it's so awesome that it has such a unique format! :D
