I enjoyed this book. It was a nice change of pace from what I've been reading. Brewster's gift is an interesting premise, and it kept me listening to see what would happen.

Some parts of the plot are a little predictable, but the well-developed characters make the book worth reading.

I really liked the multiple narrators in this book - the different narrators were well developed as individual characters and their points of view enhanced the telling of the story.

Not too much romance - more of a focus on friendships and famililial relationships.

Good recommendation for 8th - 10th graders who like a little science fiction. Students who enjoyed Things Not Seen, Elsewhere, and The Adoration of Jenna Fox will probably enjoy this book.

The audio book was very good.
