When CB’s dog dies from rabies, CB begins to question the existence of an afterlife.  His best friend is too burnt out to provide any coherent speculation; his sister has gone goth; his ex-girlfriend has recently been institutionalized; and the rest of his friends are too inebriated to give him much solace.  But a chance meeting with an artistic kid, the target of bullying, offers CB a peace of mind and sets in motion a friendship that will push teen angst to the very limits.  Drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion, and sexual identity careen toward an ending that’s both haunting and hopeful.
“A welcome antidote to the notion that the Peanuts gang provides merely a slice of American cuteness.”

“Good grief!  The Peanuts kids have finally come out of their shells.”
