While the characters have a connection and some reappear in subsequent chapters, CLICK is a work of ten very different authors who each have written a chapter that takes the story in far flung directions. The first chapter introduces Gee, a famous photojournalist, and it is basically his story that is told here but not necessarily in order as the stories tend to jump around in time and are told by different narrators. Many of your favorite authors (Linda Sue Park, David Almond, Tim Wynne-Jones) have written a chapter for this unusual book that tries to solve the mystery that surrounds one man's life.
This is best for readers in grade 6 and older.
