Review: Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman

CDChallenger Deep was another hard read. Hard– but incredible.

Meet Caden Bosch, a young man whose behavior has been growing increasingly curious to his family and friends.

Caden, who is on a ship headed for the deepest part of the earth: Challenger Deep, part of the Marianas Trench.

There are two stories but really only one.

This is a very well-drawn story of a boy battling a mental illness. There was so much I could relate to in this novel– the paranoia, the medications, the darkness.

I know that Neal Shusterman’s son inspired this story. It’s clear to see that Shusterman knows what he’s talking about. It mimicked my own experiences in such critical ways.

I highly recommend this book.
