About the Author:

Kathe Koja’s books include The Cipher, Skin, and Extremities; YA novels include Buddha Boy, Talk, Kissing the Bee, and Headlong. Her work has been honored by the ALA, the ASPCA, the Parents’ Choice Award, and the Bram Stoker Award for Best First Novel. Her books have been published in seven languages, and optioned for film. She is a Detroit native and lives in the area with her husband, artist Rick Lieder, and their cats. Koja is working on a series of staged events based on Under the Poppy.

From AudioFile:

High school sophomore Justin walks the narrow line that allows him to have some friends while avoiding conflict with the popular bullies who inhabit every school. When he's assigned to a project with the new boy with a shaved head and outsized clothing, Justin worries that he'll be unable to maintain his invisibility. What follows is a burgeoning friendship as Justin learns what drives Jinsen, dubbed "Buddha Boy" by the bullies. They share a love of art, and through their work together Justin begins to understand the value of honoring oneself enough to rise above the fray. Koja's disjointed sentences lend themselves to a full-cast recording, with the various voices helping to illuminate the path Justin takes to self-awareness. Spencer Murphy does a fine job conveying Justin's fear of the unfamiliar, and Koja's author note at the end will spark discussion of the writing process, as well as the problem of dealing with bullies.
