Reuven and Danny are back! This is the sequel to The Chosen. A couple years after that book ends, Danny and Reuven try to intervene in the life of a schizophrenic boy whose life situation is connected to and bears resemblances to both Danny’s and Reuven’s. A fine story; a completely believable next chapter for both young men; and a story that doesn’t depend too heavily on the preceding tale. But it has neither the brilliance of The Chosen or the solid goodness of many of his other books—it is definitely more sequel fare than anything else.
