The idea expressed by one of the characters resonated for me: to feel worthwhile, one must do something worthwhile. All the compliments piled on a kid won't help if the kid doesn't feel he deserves them. So he stepped up to the plate. Perception is everything.
The idea expressed that the only way to show caring is through sex is refuted well. This is something kids need to believe...boys and girls.
The plot is also interesting. I liked the side elements included to solve the problem in the plot: parkour and survivalist people and equipment...interestingly done.
Young adult books show kids figuring out how to become adults. The characters, theme, and plot were well done in this book.
The story deals with potential disasters which could happen and with the "usual suspects" of black ops bad guys don't terrible things to the environment. Hey, this kind of thing does happen, but possibly not to this extent. Still, it's not outside the realm of possibilities.
I liked all the characters. Smart-ass comments and jibes fly showing the true affection the boys had for each other. The adult character, Adrian, fits in very well as a sounding post for the boys who are in the midst of questioning their sexuality. What else do teen boys think about even when the world is potentially coming to an end?
Well-written and engrossing. This isn't even my kind of book, but I enjoyed it a lot.
I've never read a book that a friend wrote, so this was very different and sometimes difficult for me. I found myself hearing his voice through the whole thing, which was interesting...
About the book, very well written! The characters were believable and the plot was totally not what I expected. Of course, I went into this book having no idea what it was about. I wonder where the plot idea came from, it was very interesting and really pulled me in! As I was reading, I had no idea how it was going to end, which to me is very important when reading a book. This read was quick and at times hard to put down. These boys were clever, much quicker about things unfolding than I would be, but it was believable because the boys had streets smarts as well as a computer nerdy side. The behind the scenes conversations were not what I expected either, but they held your attention and I found myself really feeling for the boys (the mom in me).
To be honest, I'm still processing this book along with the Author's Note. I don't want to give anything away so I'm choosing my words carefully. I'm glad I read the book, it was a good read and it made me aware of things I otherwise wouldn't of known. I firmly believe God drew me to this book and gave me this information for a reason.
I'm keeping this short because I just wanted to hit in a few key notes not write a synopsis.
PS: this book is for young adults not children. The reviewer that left a poor review because he can't tell the difference between material appropriate for an 11 year old girl and young adult in their late teens. Apparently has trouble understanding the difference.
