Love Is Both Wave and Particle, by Paul Cody

Love Is Both Wave and Particle
Written by Paul Cody

Levon is on the spectrum and doesn’t know who his father is. Sam, who has depression, attempted suicide and spent the last year in a mental health facility. Both are now enrolled at Clock High School, which is a non-traditional high school. Both Levon and Sam are withdrawn and don’t fit in well with others (or so they believe.) Their guidance Counselor, Meg, seems to think that they need to work together on a unique senior project, by sharing their innermost personal thoughts. Will they really be able to find themselves? Chapters from Levon, Sam, and other characters’ points of view are well defined and help to emphasize the drama and aspects of their lives. Why do parents make the decisions that they do? The language, alcohol, drug use, suicide, depression, and on page sexual content make this book for older readers. However, the book is enjoyable and well put together.
