I loved this book. I loved the absurdity and the roller coaster of emotion that Adrian provides us with. Collision Theory takes so many twists and turns that I never expected. I almost never expect aliens devoted to Elvis (this is not sci-fi though). Knowing that much of the book was written to Beck's Sea Change album really solidified the tears. Hearing that music as you read scenes packed with emotion made the book all that much more beautiful.

Thomas Mullen is struggling. Everything for him feels at risk, spiked with threat, since he witnessed a woman jump to her death fifteen months ago. Now there are the pleading calls from his parents to come home, please come home. But it is not until his best friend shows up unannounced that Thomas is awakened. He soon finds himself on an unpredictable journey in which he is forced to confront difficult truths: girlfriend's leave, mother's fall ill, and attempts to deny pain will ultimately fail.
A dazzling debut from Literary Death Match creator Adrian Todd Zuniga, Collision Theory
is a headlong and heartaching modern masterwork. It's suddenness, unexpectedness, humor, and humanity make for an unforgettable read.
