Review: Imaginative, smart, and creative are all words that describe Kevin's Point of View. Del Shannon does an amazing job putting together so many details to create a story that is full of adventure. Some of the craziest things happen to the main character Kevin Tobin. This twelve-year-old boy has a lot of imagination letting different characters "run" his mind. This adventure book takes through time and catches the reader by surprise every time.
The story begins with Pudge running through the streets of New York City with a package that Pudge needs to mail to Devin in Colorado. The package's delivery is messed up; a boy named Kevin Tobin ends up getting the package. Not sure, what the package is Kevin toys around and gets into trouble. When Devin finds out who received the package he does not intend to get it. He will do anything even kill. Devin finds Kevin and his best friend Tony and tries to get the package. Devin chases them through streets, mountains, canyons, minds, and on trains. Nothing stops Devin from getting what he wants. Traveling through time does not even stop him. As he chases Kevin and Tony through the streets of Boulder, Colorado yet again, Devin is still unsuccessful. A thriller that changes Kevin's life comes with a surprise at every turn. Can the unthinkable really happen?
