In reality it only takes 5 years for Travis to be brought back to life using a donor body. His friends are no longer in high school and his girlfriend has moved on.

True to Life

Cover Art
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda - Becky Albertalli
Publication Date: 2015-04-07
Simon loves Harry Potter books, drama class, his weird family, and his three best friends. Sure he's not out to any of them, but for that he has his emails with "Blue", another gay teen at his high school. Life is comfortable, even if it's not perfect... until one of Simon's classmates finds his emails and blackmails him to being the most uncomfortable wingman ever. A great combination of humor, heartache (not too much!), and suspense, but most importantly, this is one of those books where you just love the characters. Try it and see for yourself!
