The first thing I thought of as I began the opening chapters of Disruption by Steven Whibley is “this is like mischief on steroids”. The two main characters, Jason and Matt, made me grateful I have four innocuous daughters. Of course, had the author not conveyed the mischief and the characters in such vivid manner, I would not have felt these sentiments; rather it would merely have been a story, nothing more. It also demonstrates vividly the chaos children can create for their parents, already frazzled from raising children (I know, I’ve raised quite a few, and work with them daily. Frazzled is a way of life for me).
The intrigue intensifies nicely as Matt arrives at “camp”. The reader is left hanging as to what sort of camp he’s been made to attend. The writer weaves and builds until you are fairly chomping at the bit to discover the whys behind so many actions and behaviors. That, of course, is the mark of a very good writer.
Overall, this book was spectacular. I’m an avid reader and managed to read it in a few hours and it had me on the edge of my seat for each of those hours. If it did that for ME, imagine how a young teen/adult will react. Overall – BRAVO!
