Gripping psychological thriller

Robert Cormier is a genius. While this is considered a young adult level novel, it does not talk down to readers. Very sophisticated plotting. Fantastic twist ending that will have you re-reading the beginning for the clues you missed. Highly recommended.

Very confusing, yet amazing book!

This is a book that you can't put down. There really isn't anything to fear from it, let your teens read it!
