I inhaled this book. I recently finished Scythe and Thunderhead, and decided it was about time I caught up on Shusterman backlist titles, and it was definitely the right choice. Not sure how to review this without spoilers, though. There's a great SF/magic conceit at the heart of this story, and it'...

So weird. So good, but so... not good, but so.... different.This book is extremely confusing for me. I wanted to like it so much. The concept is fantastic and the premise is cool. Even the writing is amazing in my opinion, but this book is just so weird.I don't know how to describe it. I got maybe 7...

He takes this interesting plot point and weaves it into a thought-provoking story about lo...

Brewster “Bruiser” Rawlins is a loner. He was voted “Most Likely to Go to Jail” and isn’t someone people take the time to get to know. Tennyson, a well-liked, popular guy is just like everyone else and doesn’t really give Bruiser much thought – until his sister, Bronte, starts dating him. Bronte ...

I'm hard-pressed to find something that Neal has written that I haven't loved. Another great, well-written book (with a creative use of POVs) that is a book I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

This was an amazing how love can be harmful but in the end, conquer all. It teaches you to do what you believe is right, stand up for what you believe in, and never give up on love. Ever.

An interesting take on psychic powers. Brewster, called Bruiser because... well, he just is, has the ability to transfer any pain, physical or emotional, from the person feeling it to himself.
