Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman

Challenger Deep  by Neal Shusterman

I really loved reading this with all its depth.  The multiple realities are intertwined in a way that is really interesting. To be able to watch Cayden come and go into his own reality is really cool. It gave me a neat perspective about mental illness and showed me how to not make assumptions. One part that really stood out to me was how he did not resist treatment, this is because I had read The Soloist by Steve Lopez and read about how he resisted treatment, but this just shows me how every case is different and to never make assumptions about mental illness. I really loved the symbolism and how there was a deep message in everything that happened. It was interesting to figure out how all of Cayden’s different realities connected together. It also gives a really neat perspective on the process of getting treatment and how that feels. This book really stuck with me in a way that has not happened in a long time. There is a lot more that I want to say about it, mostly rambling and other aspects that I like about it, so I am just going to leave it at, everyone should read it. It gives a type of understanding that everyone should have.
