Neal Shusterman has done it again! He writes books that will delight teens and adults alike without talking down to the younger bracket of his readers. His stories are complex and deal with grim realities in the most elegant ways. In a world where death has been conquered and a group of people known as Scythes are responsible for culling the population to ensure that the world remains stable anything is possible. Once I began this book, everything else I had to do I did grudgingly, wanting more than anything to spend uninterrupted reading time in this new world. The world of this novel is so fully realized. Shusterman thought of it all, from the technologies that would power his future society to the slang people would use and new ways they would get themselves into trouble. The characters inner life is rich and conflicted which makes for a great read. Simply put this book is brilliant!— Kaitlyn
