Editorial Reviews

Review

A slick, fast-paced thriller with a comic-book aesthetic. The pace is cinematic, with . . . snappy banter and Ade's cool, careening narration. For fans of action movies and antihero comics. (Kirkus Reviews on Future Imperfect)

Future Imperfect is an inventive exploration of addiction welded to the origin story of an unlikely superhero. (Ryan Gattis, coauthor of Kung Fu High School, on Future Imperfect)

Future Imperfect grabs you by the throat with the first sentence and refuses to let go. (Coert Voorhees, author of The Brothers Torres, on Future Imperfect)

Teenage soothsayer Ade Patience is one of the coolest narrators I've come across in a long time and oh, man, does he have a story to tell. (Josh Berk, author of The Dark Days of Hamburger Halpin, on Future Imperfect)

Format: Paperback
In his senior year, Ade no longer uses concussions to achieve the Buzz and see the future as he has found love with Vauxhall (see Future Imperfect). Still he feels something is missing since he stopped knocking his head so he joins the Pandora Crew oracles who use Delirium to cause chaos.

Ade remains discontented and believes mostly this is because he absorbed the abusive memories of Jimi. He needs them deleted so he turns to the Glove who can alter the past. When Ade emerges from the Glove's successful treatment, he learns his beloved Vauxhall does not know him. Feeling he will win her affection, Ade is shocked to find rivals competing for the love of his life; all are him.

This is an action-packed high school age science fiction thriller that grips the audience from start to finish in which reality proves fleeting. Fast-paced, this is Ade's tale as he seeks the metaphysical future and changes his past. Vauxhall, the other Ade personas, the Pandora Crew, the Glove and others enhance his actions. Although the science behind the time travel and changing of the past is basically ignored, fans will appreciate Ade's awesome adventures in the past, two presents and the future.

Format: Paperback
This is the sequel to FUTURE IMPERFECT, though I think PAST CONTINUOUS is even better than the first book. If you are a comic book reader this is the perfect novel for you to read. The story moves really quickly-- and is completely unpredictable. And Ade is the perfect modern "super hero".
