Kevin's Point of View - Del Shannon

Publisher:  Flatiron View Books
Pages:  400
Genre:  Middle Grade Science Fiction
Source:  Received a copy from author.

Kevin's Point of View was one of those strange books that grabbed me at the beginning and then confused me a little.  I decided to hang in with the reading thinking it was my inability to focus due to intermittent reading while I tried to prepare for company.  I'm glad I stuck with it.  The books starts out with Kevin having a delusional moment.  He's lost his father in the past year and is having an extremely hard time dealing with it.  Counseling doesn't seem to help.  Then we switch to a device called an Influxitron.  Kevin has received this mysterious gift and doesn't know what it is or who it is from.  The device is dangerous and suddenly Kevin and his best friend, his sister and her boyfriend all find themselves being pursued by someone who is evil.  I will stop there because to try to explain anymore will give it away.  I will tell you that I was totally blown away by the ending.  The twists and turns this book took kept me reading and I did not expect the ending at all.  For me it is a gift when an author can write so that you think one thing and then bam you are hit with something you weren't expecting.  I was asked to read and review this e-book and I want to thank the author for allowing me the opportunity.  It truly was an awesome book.
