Reading Challenger Deep by Neal Schusterman will make you say “this is weird” while scratching your head. But, that is the point, it is complex….mental illness is complex. Caden Bosch is a teenage boy that is sharing his experience with his battle and takes us along for the ride. The book is told in alternating narratives taking us through his day-to-day life while being disrupted by his mental illness, and his other life as an artist aboard a ship headed for Marianas Trench and Challenger Deep. This is Caden’s perspective, his world of reality and delusions. Is there a connection between both worlds? Go ahead pick up the book and find out. It’s funny and real and very much worth your time. #fourstars
