Fueled by friendship and sympathy, Antsy Bonano signs a month of his life over to his ?dying? classmate Gunnar Umlaut. Soon everyone at school follows suit, giving new meaning to the idea of ?living on borrowed time.' But does Gunnar really have six months to live, or is news of his imminent death greatly exaggerated? When a family member suffers a heart attack after donating two years to Gunnar, Antsy wonders if he has tempted fate by playing God. Fans of ?the Schwa? will welcome favorite and new characters in this wholly fresh tale, which is as touchingly poignant as it is darkly comical.

Antsy Does Time is a book about a boy named Anthony Bonano who has a friend named Gunnar Umlaut. Gunnar says that he only has a few months to live, so Antsy, being as friendly as possible, makes “contracts” that people can use to give periods o time to another person, just as someone would give money to another person. But this new life system causes good and bad things to happen. Antsy soon falls in love with Gunnar’s sister, Kjersten. Soon, everyone is giving time to Gunnar, but the more people give time, the more superstitious people become, especially when Antsy’s dad gives 2 years of life to Gunnar, he gets a heart attack.
I liked the book Antsy Does Time, because it is a funny book, but it also makes you think a little bit.
