About this product
- DescriptionThe vel begins with alternating chapters from two characters: Sophie, an angry Goth teenager and sarcastic social outcast; and Kenny, the 'big man on campus' whose life may be a little TOO perfect. Gradually the reader begins to see some parallels between the two teenager's lives, building up to the big reveal. Kenny, in fact, is Sophie reincarnated and living out a fantasy life! But is she really dead? Sophie gradually unravels the mystery of what is happening to her, what is happening to the real Kenny, and what happened when her father mysteriously disappeared a year earlier. There is a science fiction/fantasy element, discussion of medical research, philosophy, commerce and ethics throughout. Ultimately, this is a wildly invative young adult vel filled with appealing, sharply-drawn characters, and crazy twists and turns.

He later earned a B.A. in photography, which he used as a springboard into a variety of jobs: construction labourer, bus boy, used book buyer, hotel desk clerk, camp counsellor, statue repairman, dealer of jazz records on eBay and reluctant telemarketer.
