    Turner¿s teenage characters come to life in this fast pace urban

    Turner’s teenage characters come to life in this fast pace urban fiction. The Cage introduces a diverse group of young people from unique ethnic and cultural backgrounds. You quickly fall in love with this unique motley crew and give them their props for how they deal with beliefs about the value of Academic Placement (AP) classes and the pressures of their daily lives to be the best.

    No matter your age, you will identify with the students in The Cage. First, imagine the feeling of being forced to do something you have no interest. Second, imagine having to spend four weeks of your summer vacation in a new school. Third, imagine some temporary summer school teacher who obviously doesn’t want to be stuck in a classroom of weirdo kids anymore than you do. Last, the teacher jacks you up with an assignment that’s a bit of a drag, and expects you to interact with sixteen other people you don’t know from a hole in the wall. 

    In theory, the teacher’s assignment measures the students’ writing and participation. In practice, the students maintain a daily journal of everything that happens in their own lives, and try to keep track of the daily events of their classmates. And that’s when the story gets good. Before the teens know it, they start to open up to each other discussing their issues and problems. That is, trying to fit in, getting along with parents and so on. Then something cool happens that you don’t see coming. The teenagers set-it-off right for the classroom and have an adventure they won’t soon forget.

    I must admit that after reading the first few pages, I was ready to call the book quits. It was reading much like bratty teenagers’ rebellion against authority figures, which is not my cup of latte. But after I met the characters it got good fast, so I kept on reading until I finished the book. I really enjoyed the way the author brings the story full circle.

    I highly recommend The Cage because it’s a high-energy book filled with adventure, mystery, individualism and spiritual self-awareness.
