Elbow’s best friend, Hamster, has unexpectedly died. Everyone expects Elbow to be grieving…right? But Elbow isn’t sure how to do it.

Privately, Elbow is beginning to feel they weren’t even as close as everyone makes out. It would be better if everyone just left Elbow alone – their mum, dad, stupid big brother Donut, but especially all those annoying kids at school. Pretending they really care by writing poems, singing songs and holding a vigil at Elbow and Hamster’s favourite meeting place. Who do they think they are?

Elbow doesn’t know. They just have a strange feeling inside – an absence of all feeling at all.
