Abstract:

For Billy, 19, and his little brother Oscar, their mother's death in a bungled street robbery is the most random and tragic and stupid thing that could possibly have happened to them. The boys' new world, where bedtimes are arbitrary and healthy home-cooked meals pile up uneaten in the freezer, is built out of chaos and fierce love, but it's also a world that teeters perilously on its axis. And as Billy's obsession with his mother's killer grows, he risks losing sight of the one thing that really matters. Funny and bittersweet, Life! Death! Prizes! is a story of grief, resilience and brotherly love.
