Nothing by Janne Teller
When thirteen-year-old Pierre Anthon leaves school to sit in a plum tree and train for becoming part of nothing, his seventh grade classmates set out on a desperate quest for the meaning of life. If you had to sacrifice something meaningful to you to prove life had meaning, what would you give up? Your pet? Your little finger? What might your friends make you sacrifice?
Like The Lord of the Flies or The Lottery, this book questions what happens when control goes out of control.
