Granted, all 4 Brewster, Tennyson, Bronte and Cody’s are unique, but splitting the plot 4 ways dilutes it. Would you go on and live with your pain, or would you give it up and live a carefree existence, knowing every little thing that harm This book was exceptional in terms of characterization and its ability to make me mull over a moral dilemma.
Another negative was that the message came across as heavy-handed. I love books that end with hope. Shusterman’s other books have been the latter.
Hard topics were tackled, like abuse and bullying, but done very well. Sex – chaste as a church house. Will you become dependent on this stolen sense of safety? I don’t know if they can fix it. He is just brillant!!!
Much of his fiction is traceable back to stories he tells to large audiences of children and teenagers — such as his novel The Eyes bruixer Kid Midas.

I’ve read several other Shusterman books, and I’ve never more than just gotten through them. The problem is, their gravity is so great, the light can’t escape-it just gets pulled in along with everything else. But there’s a difference between telling a story with painful elements, and telling a story in which the entire tone is pain and suffering. And Cody knows exactly how his brother’s abilities work, and he takes some incredibly bizarre risks, while still being portrayed as a loving and caring brother.
