Summary: To be entirely honest, I may be biased, but I am just a fan of Neal Shusterman. I picked up this book with high expectations, and it didn’t disappoint. His novels are more impressive than most teenage fiction. He weaves together a story that actually matters. Warning though, this is not a light-hearted read.
Cover appeal: The cover was really compelling. The deep blue color and simplicity was beautiful. It truly represented the deep nature of this book.
Most compelling parts of the book: The reflection aspect of this book was key. The perspective in relation to the plot and the risks involved kept me reading. Caden Bosch himself was also extremely absorbing.
Disappointments: I probably could find fault with this book if I chose to, but I choose not to.
How would you rate this book? 4 - Better than most
Recommendations and final thoughts: Everyone. Mental illness is a disease that affects more people than you could possibly know. It is something every individual should be aware about. I am glad this novel is written for a teen audience, because they are usually the ones who suffer the most in this category.
