Robert Alexander Jones has written one really awful, melodramatic novel which was more of a catharsis than a novel. He's had several really good novel ideas since then, but procrastinated actually writing most of them. He has managed to write one of them, so far.
Set in the early 1990s, John and Matt have been best friends since they were children. When Matt becomes ill with leukemia, John isn't sure he can bear it if his friend dies. Matt is bitter that John has his whole life ahead of him, while he expects to die soon. But life doesn't always play out like you expect.
