The Tenth centers around a boy named Danny who has been injured seriously during a terroristic bombing. It is from his point-of-view as he meets a reporter that intends to document his experiences before and after his tenth surgery. He is originally angry, bitter, and withdrawn as result to what he had been through. The book is about his grown through that. Despite the serious subject matter, I still believe it is appropriate for young adults with the journey the book chooses. It shows us how trust can overcome fear. I really enjoyed the genuine feeling to Danny's struggle over the tenth operation and the world after the incident.
It is translated to English, but some phrasing may be a bit different than an English-written book. The story of emotional transformation, however, is universal.
