Here, in nine stories, we meet people who didn't know Kevin, friends from his childhood, his ex-girlfriend, his best friend, all dealing with the fallout of his death. How could one teenage boy's life elicit other kids' first experiences-- even after he dies? Kev's the first kid their age to die. And now, even though he's dead, he's not really gone. Even now his choices are touching the people he left behind. Ellen Hopkins reveals what two altar boys (and one altar girl) might get up to at the cemetery. Rita Williams-Garcia follows one aimless teen as he finds a new life in his new job-- at the mortuary. Will Weaver turns a lens on Kevin's sister as she collects his surprising effects-- and makes good use of them.

Kevin is dead. That is the known.
But how did his death affect those around him and even those he never met?
Each story in this book tries to answer that question.
