“One novel, ten authors” is the tagline for Click, and the roster of authors includes some of the hottest talents in teen literature. Each author contributes one chapter, and each chapter is one piece of the life and legacy of George “Gee” Keane, photojournalist and adventurer. Gee’s mysterious parting gift to his granddaughter Maggie sends Maggie on a worldwide quest for understanding, and her journey is the consistent thread that runs throughout the otherwise sketchy plot. Encompassing wide-ranging topics from the ravages of war to the magic of chance encounters, the chapters work together like an album of snapshots: disjointed but compelling. While the uneven pacing may challenge some readers, Click delivers vivid characters, emotional punch, and a creative portrayal of the complex nature of identity.
