He finds himself in situations that few adults could handle, encountering life-and-death events, exhilarating emergencies, and profound tragedies in the family business.

But Chuck also yearns for resolution of his own adolescent issues and longs for his mother who died six years ago. Confused by his fathers seeming lack of emotion as he carries out his funeral directors duties, Chuck frequently seeks solace and advice from Bart, an effeminate waiter at the ill-reputed Blistered Cat, a honky-tonk cafi across the street from the funeral home.In between hair-raising ambulance rides and fulfilling the most morbid duties of a morticians assistant, Chuck wants to remain a teenager. He strives to maintain his bond with his best friend, Andy, and to develop his first romantic relationship with Molly Sue, a local preachers daughter.

He longs for the thrills of teenage antics, yet finds them somehow unsatisfying.Throughout the summer, Chuck draws on a spiritual connection he has formed with his mother and looks to her for answers he cant get from anyone else. In the end, he learns to listen to-and trust-the answers that come from heaven.
