Abstract:

Fifteen-year-old Jackie is determined to reclaim her family's privacy and dignity by ending a reality television program about her father's terminal brain tumor.

After Jackie's father is diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor, he does the unthinkable-- he puts his life up for auction on eBay. He wants to secure his family's future. Now Jackie can do nothing but watch and wait as an odd assortment of bidders, some with nefarious intentions, drive the price up higher. When the auction finally ends, with some very public fallout, life as Jackie knows it is about to change forever. -- adapted from jacket.
