A captivating and powerful novel that lingers long beyond the last page, Challenger Deep is a heartfelt tour de force by one of today's most admired writers for teens.

Another great book that did romanticize the illness. This book left me confused and amazed by what was going on through his mind. I haven't come across a character was was quiet this deep in his illness was it was surprised what he though was going on, I'm actually surprised that the parents didn't get him help sooner because the way he was acting I think his parents should've at least had him checked out before things progressed as it did.Overall a really great and interesting book.
