About Hold: Luke Aday knew that his sister's death was imminent--she had been under hospice care for months--but that didn't make her death any easier on him or their family. He returns to school after the funeral to a changed world; his best friends welcome him back with open arms. Still, it isn't the same. When a charismatic new student, Eddie Sankawulo, tries to welcome Luke to his own school, something life-changing happens: In a moment of frustration, Luke runs into an empty classroom, hurls his backpack against the wall--and the backpack never lands. Luke Aday has just discovered that he can stop time.
