More About This Book

Overview

In his own words, 15 year old Jake is a “huge pussy.” He flinches. Always. He's too timid to make a move on Beth, the buxom girl of his dreams, and too busy getting face-slammed into lockers by bullies to do much else. He seeks the guidance of the biggest badass he knows, his cousin Nick.

Nick is a professional burglar and makes Jake his apprentice. They stalk suburban neighborhoods night after night, ransacking houses for jewelry and sweet valuables. Nick teaches Jake the finer points of breaking and entering along with his dark philosophy - that there is no right or wrong in the world, just a series of events that happen without meaning.

At first, adopting Nick's callous worldview helps Jake get over his fears and confront his tormentors, but he also unleashes an aggression in himself he never thought possible. And as he learns more about his cousin, he realizes that Nick's crimes go way beyond burglary.

In the end, Jake must face not only the monster in his cousin but also the one in his own heart.

    Casting Shadows Everywhere (L.T. Vargus) Fifteen year old Jake

    Casting Shadows Everywhere (L.T. Vargus)

    Fifteen year old Jake is an outcast. Picked on by his peers and lacking in self esteem. He has a major crush on a beautiful girl named
    Beth, she is his dream girl, the one that boys like him can never have.Jake's older cousin Nick is the opposite. He is a "professional
    burglar" with a bad attitude and the theory that there is no right or wrong in the world, things just happen. Nick is quick to take Jake
    under his wing and teach him his criminal trade.Jake eagerly wants the acceptance and his new role in Nicks life does help boost
    Jake's self esteem. But soon he starts to question himself and his cousin, and he wonders if there is something sinister that motivates 
    Nick to do what he does, and as Jake gets closer to the truth he may not like what he finds out.

    A fast paced read, with some laugh out loud moments, a lot of teen age reality and criminal intents. I would recommend to YA readers
     as well as adults. I would love to read more by L.T. Vargus.

    This is a great indy novel. I really liked it and unlike many reviewers I was not bored at all. I read this book in one day. It was that good. And short it doesn't drag the reader through a lot of side plot. I love the dream sequences and the excerts in the journal about the AP Psych class. It is gritty and gets straight to the heart of a really sick truth. The truth is that under the right circumstances we can create monsters from perfectly healthy teenagers by bullying, mistreating and just plain ignoring them. I am certainly glad I read it. I really Like the ending. It makes the whole thing worthwhile!

    Some of it showed promise and I hope the author will continue writing and improve

    Not a great book

    Story became so incredibly boring at times I almost didn't finish it. Hope the author develops his talent a little more because this book could have been so much better.
