Downsiders by Neal Shusterman

XZilla, November 26, 2007

Downsiders is a clever mixture of fact and fiction that captures enough of the imagination to make you wonder which is which. The author has made it easy to envision the existence of two worlds separated by layers of concrete and steel, but connected by a single strand of adolescent innocence of the only two people in the story with the ability to look beyond the surface to the heart. Those two people are Talon and Lindsey. For me, this novel is every bit as entertaining as it is thought provoking. This novel held my attention from beginning to end. I recommend it to sci-fi fans looking to explore the possibility of new worlds closer to home.
