A teen wrestler plans to kill himself the day before turning 16 but worries he won't get to heaven if he does. "The Catholic iconography and childhood flashbacks the author intertwines with his narration, plus the surreal events, characters and setting will likely draw readers into his world," PW wrote. Ages 12-up. (May)
