Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—Caden Bosch lives in two worlds. One is his real life with his family, his friends, and high school. There he is paranoid for no reason, thinks people are trying to kill him, and demonstrates obsessive compulsive behaviors. In his other world, he's part of the crew for a pirate captain on a voyage to the Challenger Deep, the ocean's deepest trench. There he's paranoid, wary of the mercurial captain and his mutinous parrot, and tries hard to interpret the mutterings of his fellow shipmates as they sail uncharted waters toward unknown dangers. Slowly, Caden's fantasy and paranoia begin to take over, until his parents have only one choice left. Shusterman's latest novel gives readers a look at teen mental illness from inside the mind of Caden Bosch. He is a credible and sympathetic character, and his retreat into his own flawed mind is fascinating, full of riddles and surrealism. Shusterman based the novel on his son's mental illness, and Brendan's input regarding his diagnosis of schizoaffective disorder and psychiatric care makes the novel ring true. Teens, especially fans of the author's other novels, will enjoy this book. VERDICT This affecting deep dive into the mind of a schizophrenic will captivate readers, engender empathy for those with mental illnesses, and offer much fodder for discussion.—Heather Miller Cover, Homewood Public Library, AL --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

A brilliant journey across the dark sea of mental illness; frightening, sensitive, and powerful. Simply extraordinary. --Laurie Halse Anderson, award-winning author of Speak"

A powerful collaboration...[Caden s] story turns symptoms into lived reality in ways readers won t easily forget. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

A thoroughly realistic story...Both male and female readers will find this compelling while acquiring a deeper compassion and understanding. --Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)"

An adventure in perspective as well as plot, this unusual foray into schizophrenia should leave readers with a deeper understanding of the condition. --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

Clearly written with love, the novel is moving; but it s also funny, with dry, insightful humor. Illustrations by the author s son Brendan, drawn during his own time in the depths of mental illness, haunt the story with scrambling, rambling lines, tremulousness, and intensity. --Horn Book (starred review)"

Haunting, unforgettable, and life-affirming all at once. --Booklist (starred review)"

Shusterman does a masterful job...The intensity of living inside Caden s mind makes this a wrenching read. --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)"

Teens, especially fans of the author s other novels, will enjoy this book. VERDICT This affecting deep dive into the mind of a schizophrenic will captivate readers, engender empathy for those with mental illnesses, and offer much fodder for discussion. --School Library Journal (starred review)"
