Wow, I'm not even sure where to start with this book. First, I would like to say that it is haunting, disturbing, beautiful, poetic, lyrical, mysterious, dark, creepy and sad. It produced in me such a range of emotions, I wasn't sure if I was coming or going. I was surprised to find that I did not cry when reading it, as I thought for sure the sadness brought about by the main character's struggle would have surely thrown me over the edge. I have never read anything like this before. It is completely different from books in the YA Genre that are out there today. It is totally set apart from every other psychological thriller you can possibly think of. I could not put this book down and was unhappy when I had to! I just had to know what was going to happen next; where Ien would take us down his twisted road. If you are a fan of Phantom of the Opera, you will absolutely love this book and you must listen to the soundtrack while you read this piece of art. If you like to read Edgar Allen Poe, then this book will take you down his same twisted, curving roads. It is such a powerful and deep story it will leave you completely breathless.I am so honored and humbled! I wrote Transcend just after my mom died, at a time of deep grief. I have no words to describe how much the reader response has meant to me.
