Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman

The novel Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman is about a boy named Caden Bosch.  He pretends to join the track team just to walk around for miles, absorbed by his thoughts. Also, he is a "brilliant student", but his friends notice weird things about him. He has a mental illness (schizophrenia) and goes to the hospital to end up staying there for a while.  My favorite part of the book was when Caden got asked what he saw when closed his eyes.  He responded:  "What type of a dumb-ass question is that?" I thought that was really funny.  I would rate this book 4.3 stars because there are a lot of mature moments.  I would recommend this book to my friends.  Thanks for reading my review!

This book was quite interesting.  Caden Bosch is slowly descending into a mental illness, and than recovers.  You kind of have to think about it like their are two worlds, one that's in his mind and one that's reality.  The book captivated me and I was always wondering what was going to happen next.  I would rate the book an 8 out of 10, and definitely recommend it to friends!
