Can playing dead bring you back to life? Maybe only on Dead Wednesday... On this day the worlds of a shy boy and a gone girl collide, and the connection they make will change them both forever. A brilliant new novel from the Newbery Medal winner and author of the New York Times bestseller Stargirl.

Jerry Spinelli has created another middle grade masterpiece. --BookPage, starred review

On Dead Wednesday, every eighth grader in Amber Springs is assigned the name and identity of a teenager who died a preventable death in the past year. The kids don black shirts and for the whole day everyone in town pretends theyre invisible--as if they werent even there. The adults think it will make them contemplate their mortality. The kids know its a free pass to get away with anything.

Worm Tarnauer feels invisible every day. Hes perfectly happy being the unnoticed sidekick of his friend Eddie. So hes not expecting Dead Wednesday to feel that different. But he didnt count on being assigned Becca Finch (17, car crash). And he certainly didnt count on Becca showing up to boss him around! Letting this girl into his head is about to change everything.

This is the story of the unexpected, heartbreaking, hilarious, truly epic day when Worm Tarnauer discovers his own life.
