Anahita Rosalind Ghorban-Galaszczuk (yes, that really is her name but you can call her Ana) is discovering that life is absurd. As if dying of cancer at the age of 12.5 isn't bad enough, she still has to endure daily insults from her nemesis, Alyssa (Queen Mean) Anderson.

Ana's on a wild roller-coaster of life and death, kindness and cruelty, ordinary and extraordinary.

And she's got a few things to do before she exits . . .
