Discounted Nook-Book-of-the-Day from Barnes and Noble: The Kidney Hypothetical: Or How to Ruin Your Life in Seven Days. I haven’t read the book but it sounds as if it might be entertaining.
From B&N website: Lisa Yee gives us her most fascinating flawed genius since Millicent Min.Higgs Boson Bing has seven days left before his perfect high school career is completed. Then it’s on to Harvard to fulfill the fantasy portrait of success that he and his parents have cultivated for the past four years. Four years of academic achievement. Four years of debate championships. Two years of dating the most popular girl in school. It was, literally, everything his parents could have wanted. Everything they wanted for Higgs’s older brother Jeffrey, in fact. But something’s not right. And when Higgs’s girlfriend presents him with a seemingly innocent hypothetical question about whether or not he’d give her a kidney . . . the exposed fault lines reach straight down to the foundations of his life. . . .
