Summary
"As if being stuffed into last years dress pants at his cousins wake werent uncomfortable enough, thirteen-year-old Jimmy has just learned from his mother that he has to say a few words at the funeral the next day. Why him? What could he possibly say about his cousin, who ruined everything they did? He cant recall one birthday party, family gathering, or school event with Patrick that didnt result in injury or destruction. As Jimmy attempts to navigate the odd social norms of the wake, he draws on humor, heartfelt concern, and a good deal of angst while racking his brain and his memory for a decent and meaningful memory to share. But its not until faced with a microphone that the realization finally hits him: its not the words that are spoken that matter the most, but those that are truly heard."--Publisher
