This book is probably classified as young adult but I found it to be very good adult reading. Most of it is written in the first person of the main character, Chris Anderson, who is a college freshman with the usual array of friends but the story is not about the usual college experience. The author paints a picture you can see as the plot unfolds and the narrator brings out the feelings of the characters. Suspenseful at times with a surprise ending that could be no other way.
