Review: Downsiders by Neal Shusterman

I've read several Neal Shusterman novels, and with each one I can't help but wonder how he came up with the story. What an imagination!

Downsiders tells about life under New York, in tunnels that, according to the Downsiders (those living underground), have always been there. Some Downsiders aren't 100% content with never venturing Topside though, and one day Talon's curiosity gets the better of him. He meets Lindsay, and their lives are forever altered by their exposure to the unknown.

Downsiders isn't my favorite Shusterman novel (I could put it down for a day or two at a time), but it was interesting.
