The relationship that forms between Caleb and Adam is sweet, funny and complicated. I enjoyed how their relationship grows over the book and the realistic use of Adam's depression to show how you can't change someone's feelings just because you want to or think you can. Depression is a complex disorder that affects every sufferer differently.
For teenagers, Caleb handles the knowledge of Adam's depression well but also tries to fix it assuming he can because he feels the feelings from Adam.
I was loving this book until it started to be more about superhumans than the relationship involving Caleb and Adam.
I have mixed emotions on a lot of elements of this book that I decided to not allow to deter from my enjoyment of this book. It is an emotionally well-written book. The author does a great job of pulling you into the book and feeling it. It's exciting and full of emotion and humor until it isn't. Maybe if I knew the podcast, I would understand the book more but alas, I haven't heard of it until now.
All in all, I enjoyed this book, it was a rollercoaster of feels and I read it with haste.
