So what do you do when your biology field trip takes a little detour—to heaven? If you're David James, the class clown, you demand an audience with God and challenge him to a debate. The prize? A ticket back to life. But David doesn't have a clue how a debate actually works, and so he teams up with Marie, a nerdy classmate who happens to be president of the Speech and Debate Club. Their efforts seem thwarted at every step, but David sticks it out with Marie and wonders, Will a goof-off have what it takes to beat God? •A wildly funny and action-packed debut novel •A contemporary novel with an odd assortment of characters in an even odder setting—heaven.

This been one of the funniest book i have read in a long time i am not really a fan of reading a book constantly and so quickly as what i did with this one. I think it was becuase once i went home i went at it or the book is short?. I am not sure but the author of this book i will be looking for more books by her on this subject maybe a repeat

I'd been hearing GREAT things about this book, and couldn't wait to read it. Mary Pearson is a gifted, humorous writer who can successfuly blend serious topics into a light, fast-paced FUN book. David goes on a school field trip but a wrong turn lands him and his classmates in Heaven. Then it's up to David to debate his way out of this life and death situation. The ending was perfect!
