Reviews

"National Book Award winner Neal Shusterman's Game Changer is a brilliantly mind-bending YA work of speculative fiction...Shusterman fictionalizes these big issues while simultaneously making connections to our own reality, prompting readers to question how their own biases and privilege might distort their perception of the world. Game Changer is a book with a sense of humor and an existential bent that is overflowing with biting social commentary and aphoristic wisdom. Easy to read, with perspective-altering drama, this novel is on track to become the go-to contemporary fable for this generation of readers." -- Shelf Awareness (starred review)

"A timely, speculative thought experiment in perspective, privilege, and identity." -- Kirkus Reviews

"The conceit behind Shusterman's latest is truly unique. While it exhibits the author's usual storytelling aplomb, it also manages to delve into more serious and timely subject matter, such as racism, sexism, and homophobia. Despite these heavy topics, the story still moves at a lively pace and, thanks to a zany sci-fi twist, manages to pack in a few laughs as well." -- Booklist

"A straight, white, cisgender teen is confronted with his own privilege via iterative realities in Printz Honoree Shusterman's (Scythe) ambitious speculative novel." -- Publishers Weekly

"Shusterman has an eye for clever concepts and a masterful control of pace." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"It's a testament to Shusterman's storytelling powers that he is able to develop a cohesive narrative across these multiple shifts, exploring the subtle nuances of how they affect not only Ash but the entire supporting cast." -- Horn Book Magazine
