His first series that I read was Unwind and it was aimed at 14 yos and a terrifying dystopia. The second was the Scythe series which was super dark. Then I read Challenger Deep which was about mental illness (which I didn't realize until halfway through). And now The Schwa.
The Schwa is functionally invisible. Four out of five people don't see The Schwa or even know that he's there. This is the first of Shusterman's books for kids that really seemed like it was for kids. And I really liked it.
This is a book for anyone who has ever felt invisible. Middle children, kids with missing parents, the less popular ones. Pretty much anyone who has felt invisible, even if just for a moment. It's about friendship and the town curmudgeon. I'd recommend for sure.
