Away We Go by Emil Ostrovski
Westing is not your typical school. For starters, you have to have one very important quality in order to be admitted—you have to be dying. Every student at Westing has been diagnosed with PPV, or the Peter Pan Virus. No one is expected to live to graduation.
What do you do when you go to a school where no one has a future? Noah Falls, his girlfriend Alice, and his best friend Marty spend their time drinking, making out, and playing video games on awaywego.com. But when an older boy named Zach (who Noah may or may not be in love with) invites Noah and Marty to join his secret Polo Club, the lives of both boys change as they struggle to find meaning in their shortened existence.
With an innovative format that includes interstitial documents, such as flyers, postcards, and handwritten notes, Away We Go is a funny, honest look at first love and tragic heartbreak.

I wanted to read away we go because I like the sound of PPV the Peter Pan virus and the idea of the kids in the camp basically waiting to die it had a lot of promise for me and I thought it was going to go out a completely different directions.
Well both of the boys definitely had unique voices they were too strong for me. there was a lot of cursing and I guess I should have read description work that does describe it is funny but I guess I was excited more of the emotional.
This is definitely a case of me expecting something different and not thoroughly researching before I chose to request
That isn't to say that the writing is poor or the characters are poorly constructed, it's personal on my end.
