Review of Chris Crutcher's Deadline
Monday, September 24, 2007  5:19:00 PM

by Beth Fehlbaum



Young Adult/Teen
Chris Crutcher has done it again. Packed paradigm-shifting questions into a novel while entertaining and teaching at the same time. Deadline will rock your world.

Freedom through truth. Peace through truth. Chris Crutcher is an author who is blissfully unafraid to tell it like it is--even when telling it like it is leads to questions for which there are no easy answers.
As I was reading Deadline, I was struck again and again by the no-holds-barred frankness--- the unblinking honesty-- with which Crutcher empowers Ben Wolf, his terminally ill hero.
Deadline is unforgettable. It questions again and again why people believe as they believe, and leaves no doubt that keeping oneself insulated from truth, even when the intention is to protect loved ones from grief, is a selfish act.
I have read all of Chris Crutcher's books, and without exception, I have always come away from them feeling as if I have been infused with knowing a greater truth, whether about myself or the world. Deadline leaves me infused and nearly without words for it-- so powerful a punch it packs.
Thank you, Chris Crutcher, for another thought-provoking book.
