"IN LOVE AND DEATH, THERE ARE NO FRIENDS." So says Jack Tumor, the crass inner voice of an undiagnosed brain tumor forcing itself upon the consciousness of fourteen-year-old Hector Brunty. At first, Jack wreaks havoc on Hector's social life, causing Hector to speak and act inappropriately. Over time, though, Jack reveals his actual intention: to remake awkward Hector and attract the most beautiful girl in school. Could it be that Jack truly wants to help Hector? What's more, could a tumor have something to teach Hector about life?
