A funny, heartbreaking story about life and loss, and making every second count.


Eric's best friend, Finn Jones, was the world's biggest prankster. Now Eric can't believe Finn's not here anymore. ...Or is he?


Eric seems to be getting messages from beyond the grave, and as he follows Finn's wild, cryptic instructions, his hope grows that he'll find Finn laughing at the end.


The journey also brings memories - and a truth that seems impossible to accept.
