Luke Hunter thinks hea€™s joking when he tells a good friend exactly when a€“ 8:37 the following morning a€“ and how a€“ hit by a red van from out of town a€“ that friend will die. But when events unfold as Luke foretold, he wants none of it: he has enough problems being an average teenager without the added burden of seeing into the future a€“ not to mention the ever-after. Terrified, but pretending not to be, Luke pushes his friends and family away, while the local news crew, a Christian fundamentalist preacher and a missing girla€™s frantic mother all draw nearer, seeking to profit from Lukea€™s new-found a€˜gifta€™.
