Arrogant high school senior Jake Holomann is one month away from graduating a semester early. From his point of view, Jake can't get away from his school and his classmates fast enough. When his English teacher suggests he might have more to learn before heading off to college, Holomann scoffs at the idea but accepts her strange homework assignment. His month long task to learn the meaning of "empathy" turns into a journey he could never have imagined - Jake mysteriously spends one day living the life of each of his classmates. Sometimes humorous, sometimes harrowing, 30 Days to Empathy represents the voices of 31 authors and is the world's first crowd sourced, class sourced, high school novel ever published. This coming of age story is certain to become a high school classic.
