Humor is probably the best way to deal with waking up five years after you've died. That's what Travis Coates does, in a brand new body, with the same old head, still sixteen when everyone he's every known and loved is five years older. Sadness of course plays in a bit too, but I'd be getting aHEAD of the story and giving too much away, and I can't do Whaley's storytelling justice anyways.
