All My Friends Are Dead by Avery Monsen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
My daughter asked for this for her 21st birthday. Of course, I peeked . . . okay, I'm lying, I read the entire thing in about 10 minutes. This is, in essence, a book for existential children . . . or child existentialists . . . or cynical adults who don't like to read but like grim humor in the form of a children's book. If Sartre had had children (did he? I don't know, but I suspect not), he would have read this to them at bedtime every night. Because any night could be your last . . .
PS: I liked the glue entry the best. Yes, there's really a glue entry . . . and it's funny . . . and morbid . . . just go read it!
