Recommended for: Those who like to think about the stories they read.

When I started this book I thought it was a dystopian novel, which is is of sorts, but as a metaphor for what has happened and is currently happening in parts of our world when communities are divided by a wall. It is an action story full of different relationships with family, strangers and government and how we are all connected and how our actions lead to consequences far beyond what we can ever appreciate.

It was well written as first person as a believable protagonist, with the author letting us into the thinking of a 13 year old boy who changes over a short period of time as he learns of things much bigger than himself.

Available in our library now.
