About to be a senior in high school, Ben Wolf has a serious problem on his hands. His sports physical has come back, with extremely bad news. He only has one year left of his life.
Ben is torn between telling everyone in his life, or leaving it a secret until he can't anymore. But he's determined to make his last year the best one he's ever lived. That includes going out for the football team. Hitting on the best-looking girl in school. Antagonizing the government teacher. No matter what, Ben must face what will come. No matter what.
If you only read one book this year, make sure it's Deadline. This book will have you thinking about what you might do if you only had one year left. And what you might change.
