Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0889954437, Paperback)

“If you think life makes sense, do not read this book.”
 
 It’s this credo that sixteen-year-old Joe Campbell lives by. You see, his birth parents were killed in a car accident, and four years later he’s still trying to work his way past that loss. His new parents are as supportive and loving as he could wish. But Joe is still trying to figure out whether there is any pattern or purpose to his existence, and remains doubtful that there is an answer.
 
Yet all around him patterns and purposes gradually take shape, and this compelling novel traces the thought processes and the people that eventually make a difference in Joe’s life. The story is of Joe’s digging into his past, and looking around the present, as he seeks to make sense of the world. But it’s not a solitary quest as his good friends Gloria and Dean – both outsiders in the high school they all attend – accompany him on this quest for meaning.
 
Random will resonate with many teenagers who, to a greater or lesser extent, find themselves besieged by doubt and speculation about their places in the world.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:21:23 -0400)

Although he has caring adoptive parents, even four years after the accident that killed his birth parents, Joe--once Campbell, now MacDonald--has trouble coping with the feeling that life has no meaning or purpose.
