Worthy sequel to Tyrell, one of my favorite teen books of the last 10 years. This one is like the Empire Strikes Back of what I hope will be a trilogy -- deeper conflicts, fighting with your dad over who is the man and more dangerous company. Tyrell faces lots of things that could easily be treated as cliche by a less gifted writer. Instead, Coe Booth lets us see deep inside Tyrell's thought processes and emotional reasoning. When he makes the wrong choices, you can see how close he came to almost making the right ones, if only the circumstances were just a little bit different.
