Author(s): Neal Shusterman
An ambitious and magnetic novel from the New York Times bestselling Neal Shusterman, about a teenage American football player forced into a series of parallel lives.
As a star player on his high school American football team, Ash is used to taking some hard hits. But that one run in his last game must have knocked him a little loose, because suddenly his life doesn't look quite the way he remembers it.
As Ash bounces into worlds that are almost-but-not-really his own, he starts to question everything, including his own perceptions and place in his own reality. But can he even work out how to get back there?
Matilda Bookshop Review
Following a head injury, Ash finds the world not quite as it once was and furthermore that it is he who is somehow manipulating it. Without fully understanding how he is controlling things, Ash begins to play a dangerous game of what if with the universe. Despite the best of intentions it does not take long until he finds himself in a dystopia of his own making.
This is a great speculative fiction read! For anyone who has ever wished for a fairer world, Game Changer proposes that what if we, given the potential to save the world from itself, could not help but make it immeasurably darker... or destroy it entirely? Emilie
"A timely, speculative thought experiment in perspective, privilege, and identity." —Kirkus
"The conceit behind Shusterman’s latest is truly unique. While it exhibits the author’s usual storytelling aplomb, it also manages to delve into more serious and timely subject matter, such as racism, sexism, and homophobia. Despite these heavy topics, the story still moves at a lively pace and, thanks to a zany sci-fi twist, manages to pack in a few laughs as well." —Booklist
