Antsy Does Time by Neal Shusterman
Antsy and Gunnar are given a project to work on together for school. As they become friends Gunnar reveals that his doctor has told him he only has a few months left to live. Antsy wants to help Gunnar in some way so he offers to donate one month of his own life to Gunnar. Gunnar is touched by the gesture and so are many people at school. Soon, everyone is approaching Antsy to ask him about drawing up contracts for their own donations to Gunnar. Meanwhile, Antsy is beginning to think he might have a chance with Gunnar's older, beautiful sister Kjersten as they begin spending more time together. But as time goes on and Antsy learns more about Gunnar he begins to doubt his friend's story and becomes more uneasy about all the people at school who are obsessed with Gunnar's story.
