But how do you escape when your pursuers can hear your every thought?
Todd is the last boy in Prentisstown. You become a man at age 13, and since he's the last "boy" he is very nearly an outcast. He has been raised by his parents two best friends, and he has known nothing but the men in Prentisstown. All who are a little on the strange side... especially the priest, Aaron *shudder.*
He has never seen a woman. At least, not in person. He's certainly seen the men's fantasies about women in their audible thoughts.
Only when he is out on his normal escapades, does he stumble upon the first woman he has ever seen.
The minute he finds her, is the minute his life will never be the same again.
This was a fun adventure. Following Todd, Manchee, and the girl was not only fun, but filled with intense moments. Apparently being friend with a girl was the worst thing Todd could have done.
Patrick Ness is an incredible author. I was riveted the entire book.
4.5 out of 5!
