Flash Burnout

Flash of edginess
Normal boy, abnormal life
To hurtle or not?

When You Reach Me

Past, present, future
Collide in the book and me
Tesser to brocc’li?

I love that I remember so much about When You Reach Me. It brings back fond memories of growing up and my love of the idea of tesseracts and A Swiftly Tilting Planet. I also love how a normal boy lives with one foot in an edgy world in Flash Burnout, and I think that kids would love this too. So I vote to hurtle -- Flash Burnout it is.
