Challenger Deep by Neal Schusterman Review: Diving into Schizophrenia

Challenger Deep is not an easy read. But schizophrenia is not an easily understood illness. The book outlines the delusions, anxiety and paranoia which a schizophrenia sufferer experiences, at their worst, and it serves as a confronting and elegant look into a feared and misunderstood mental illness. I’m a big fan of books that tackle mental illness sensitively …

Splintered by A.G. Howard Review: Love Triangle Hell

Here I go, black sheeping again…Splintered was a really interesting dark twist on Alice in Wonderland, but unfortunately the horrible love triangle and bland main character detracted from the rest for me. It starts out quite promising, with Alyssa’s mother stuck in a mental hospital. She hallucinates, talks to bugs and is convinced that she’s living in Wonderland. …

Because You’ll Never Meet Me by Leah Thomas Review: Electricity Boy & German Daredevil

Because You’ll Never Meet Me is a charming story of two penpals with unusual conditions – Ollie who is allergic to electricity, and Moritz, who has no eyes and needs a pacemaker for his heart. I’m glad I was warned this was speculative fiction – because it would have been a bit hard to believe otherwise! The …
