Olive Peart's Linked is a story about two teen boys dealing with difficulties in their own families when suddenly their consciousnesses switch places As if that wasn't challenging enough they are of different ethnicities with one African American and the other CaucasianThe premise is an interesting one especially the way they survive the culture shock of being in the bodies and homes of a boy they never met The telepathic connection is a neat twist However with the addition of spousal abuse the story is not as benign as one might think In fact my middle school child took offense at the use of profanity throughout the story even though the F word was never usedSo although a good read parents should read first or along with their children

Uggled for years to find out why his mother would choose to remain with a man who physically abuses her His fear is that his stepfather is actually his real father Frustrated and angry Steve goes for his stepfather's gun And then there is the link Neither boy is able to deal. I won this book for free from the Goodread's First Reads giveaway I feel this book can be enjoyed by many readers ages 12 and all the way up to adulthood I am 27 and I really enjoyed this story This book is basically about 2 boys one caucasian and one african american that switch spots and end up walking in each others shoes Each boy is then faced with each other's family problems This is a common idea and there have been other books and movies in regards to this but I found this book to be uniue and interesting I really enjoyed the two main characters Greg and Steve and think most people would find them relatable I loved how the boys learned what it was like to be of a different race and they were able to overcome some of their own prejudice thoughts I think all teenagers should have to read this book in school as it teaches valuable lessons dealing with racism dealing with bullies and dealing with home problems I know I will for sure make my children read it one day The only downfalls I would say is I wish it was a bit longer and the ending was too summed up Also the cover is not really appealing Strongly recommended; a great read I am very happy to have won this short book

Olive Peart certainly knows her teenagers and she knows the segregated high school world of cliues and misunderstandings Linked tells the tale of two teens one black one white whose lives are oddly similar despite their obvious differences Unfortunately for them or perhaps fortunately their lives are also linked When family problems stretch relationships with those they love to breaking point this curious link between two boys who’ve never even met grows suddenly strong The author handles the curious relationships formed when two boys switch bodies in a fun relatively convincing and surprisingly intricate style Each can feel the others’ pain Both feel betrayal And each views his neighbor’s world through a mixture of pre conceived ideas and the fresh eyes needed to shed light “I don’t want to be black” says one “I don’t want to be white” With true teenage flexibility they forge ahead and find their worlds not so different; their needs and desires almost the same Resolution comes when both boys learn to respect each others’ advice Then black and white adults come to their families’ aid and show themselves in shades of pre conceived prejudice too The boys are left to guide and build on what they’ve learned Linked is a fast moving story There’s no long lingering thoughts and diatribes But the thoughts that the tale inspires linger long after the telling I’m grateful to the DeMarche Publishing for letting me read this a fun teenage novel with a neat mix of action science fiction and social science and some wise lessons to learn
