I’ll say right now that I am not the ideal audience for stories about teenagers, because I don’t understand those people.  Even when I was a teenager, I avoided them at all costs.  That said, I really enjoyed MAXIMUM HIGH.

There’s big crazy action, and as a guy who’s into that kind of thing, I was completely delighted.  The standout for me was a faceoff in “the cube”, which is, and I quote “a twelve-sided fighting arena.  Each side has its own gravitational field.  At the center – zero gravity.”  It’s Thunderdome with inconsistent gravitational pull!  The mystery of just what the heck is going on at Maximum High is developed well, too.  It’s basically a given that the lead characters don’t have the whole story, but the way it plays out is clever and surprising.
