Westlake Soul by Rio Youers

"All superheroes get their powers from somewhere. A radioactive spider bite. A science experiment gone awry. I got mine from a surfing accident in Tofino. The ultimate wipeout. I woke up with the most powerful mind on the planet, but a body like a wet paper bag . . ."

Meet Westlake Soul, a twenty-three-year-old former surfing champion. A loving son and brother. But if you think he’s just a regular dude, think again; Westlake is in a permanent vegetative state. He can’t move, has no response to stimuli, and can only communicate with Hub, the faithful family dog. And like all superheroes, Westlake has an archenemy: Dr. Quietus—a nightmarish embodiment of Death itself. Westlake dreams of a normal life—of surfing and loving again. But time is running out; Dr. Quietus is getting closer, and stronger. Can Westlake use his superbrain to recover . . . to slip his enemy’s cold embrace before it’s too late?

Once I started reading this book, I couldn't put it down. Westlake's story is painful and human and expertly woven, bringing tears to my eyes more than once. The book's language is unusual (eg. surfer jargon and pop culture references) but fitting as the entire narrative is from a 23 year old's point of view. I picked this up on a whim and am nothing but pleased with my choice.

Couldn't put it down. Been a long time since I read anything that I finished in 2 days!
