"An excellent sequel . . . This installment raises the stakes, making the story not just about physical and emotional transformation, but about survival." —School Library Journal
Changers Book Two: Oryon in the four-part Changers Series for young adults finds our hero Ethan/Drew on the eve of her second metamorphosis—into Oryon, a skinny African American skater boy with more swagger than he knows what to do with. Enter a mess of trouble from the Changers Council, the closed-minded Abiders, the Radical Changers (RaChas), and his best friend Audrey—at least she was his best friend when Oryon was Drew—and now, it's complicated.
But that's life (and life, and life, and life) for Changers, an ancient race of humans who must live out each year of high school as a completely different person. Before next summer, Oryon will learn what it means to be truly loved, scared spitless, and at the center of a burgeoning national culture war. Most of all, he will learn again how much the eyes of the world try to shape you into what they see—and how only when you resist do you clearly begin to see yourself.
"This completely unique perspective of someone experiencing life as part of a less privileged group of people makes this book pretty special . . . good fun to read." —The Guardian
"Oryon's humor and insight will keep readers turning pages." —Kirkus Reviews
"A fun yet thought-provoking young-adult story . . . Dealing with themes of difference, loyalty, resisting authority, and finding one's true self, this book is a fun and easy read." —OutSmart
