BRAiN RiDE is a first-person story told from the view of two teenage boys, Jason and Logan. After a horrific bike accident, Logan is left with a serious brain injury. Although his change in mental capacity has put a strain on their brother-like relationship, they train together for an important bike race across the state. Aided by a teacher, they set out to keep moving from their past and maybe earn some money for Logan’s medical bills.

 

Opinion: 

Angela Prusia’s story is believable. The main characters are basically your everyday teenagers who love music and sports. The story has realistic settings, characters, and themes. I enjoyed the humorous aspects of the book, and the illustrations are very clever. However, if you are an easily depressed reader, I would advise against reading this book, as things do go downhill occasionally in the storyline. Even though there is some questionable language, I would recommend this story to teenagers.
