I'm a big fan of Christopher Myers artwork but was confused by this title, which features brightly colored silhouettes on top of photographs and beside poetry by W. D. Myers himself. I studied the photos, turning the book right side up and upside down, because I knew they were deliberately chosen for a purpose; that purpose was not clear to me though, except in a few beautiful pages, the city image double-spread, for example. However, for the right young adult, the investigation of the photographs and how they relate to the theme of identity, could be life-changing.
