review 1: Thirteen Days to Midnight by Patrick Carman is a novel about a teenage boy named Jacob who has moved through the foster care system for most of his life before he is taken in by Mr. Fielding. Mr Fielding is a caring, but undemanding, host and the two gentlemen relish their Saturday's together when they set off in the car driving to new and various breakfast destinations. During these trips they become acquainted with each other and form a close bond that abruptly ends in a car accident claiming Mr Fielding's life. Before he died he bestowed the gift of invincibility on his young ward. The biggest problem is that not all powers are gifts and Mr Fielding left no instructions about this miraculous power and it's rules of existence.This is my first Patrick Carman novel and... more I zoomed through it pretty quickly. It was so good that I will be purchasing more Patrick Carman novels in the future. I really enjoyed this story.
review 2: Ok, generally I don't read YA, but my 16 year old handed me this one, which he got from a teacher a year ago & found when he cleaned his room. It SOUNDED interesting, so I decided to give it a shot. Finished it in about 2 hours flat. It's FASCINATING, dark, but has humor as well, of the dark variety. It's about a boy named Jacob, who was a foster child, & gets a dark gift of indestructibility by his mysterious final foster father, & not understanding it, experiments with it with his best buddy Milo, & the new girl in his life, Ophelia. Things begin to spin out of control........ less
