Pretty kinky with interesting twist at end but not in league with his Northern Ireland series.

Fifteen-year-old Danny Lopez has never been a model student at his Las Vegas school. Caring more about skateboarding than studying, his mom, Juanita, and his stepdad, Walt, hope that the move to Colorado will be good for him academically. Juanita has been offered the job of managing a new casino on the Ute Indian Reservation, so Danny finds himself in the small town of Cobalt, near Colorado Springs. Shortly after moving into their new house, Danny meets Antonia "Tony" Meadows, a pretty but quirky girl his age who lives across the street and warns him that the school he is going to attend, Cobalt Junior High Charter School, is different than what he's used to. On his first day, Danny learns just how different CJHCS is. The principal, Mr. Lebkuchen, has instituted the Direct Instruction method, which requires that teachers and students follow a script throughout the school day, and forbids any communication between students of any kind on school grounds. Everyone at CJHCS must also wear stifling uniforms complete with white gloves. Tony introduces Danny to her friends, and he soon learns that the students at CJHCS have other methods of communication besides talking. Just as Danny thinks things couldn't get any stranger, however, he learns that several housecats in Cobalt have gone missing, only to turn up days later ritualistically mutilated. Danny also starts receiving unsettling and cryptic letters from someone named "Indrid Cold," and they seem to be tied to the cat killings. Convinced that there is a serial killer in Cobalt, Danny and his friends decide to find out who the killer is, before they begin murdering people instead of cats.

Quirky and unique, this tale from veteran crime novelist, Adrian McKinty, is certainly not for everyone, but will definitely prove interesting to many. Set in the fictional town of Cobalt, Colorado, the author's crime novel background shines through in establishing the setting, the cast of characters, and the mystery surrounding the cat killer that is terrorizing Danny Lopez and his new friends. Squeamish readers beware, the story contains quite a bit of graphic detail concerning the cat killings, and cat lovers might immediately put the book down as the first chapter describes a (fortunately) nearly successful cat murder. The author takes the reader straight into the mind of the murderer (though the identity is left unknown until the end), creating an effective sense of foreboding as the killer begins to resent Danny and his friends meddling in the crime spree. The situation at Danny's new school, where students have to be quiet and wear strange white gloves, takes a backseat to the murder mystery aspect of the novel, which is unfortunate since it was one of the most interesting parts of the story. Despite this slight shortcoming, however, Deviant has a lot to offer the reader, especially teen boys who will like Danny's style of narration and the brisk pace of the story. The novel is definitely a departure from typical young adult fare, and bold readers should give it a try.

I have to say that, although I enjoyed this novel, I am not surprised to read that it received quite a few negative reviews. It definitely is not for everyone, but I think that many teen readers, especially boys, will "get it" like I did. The subject matter is, admittedly, unusual: serial cat killer stalks small town. I am personally a moderate cat lover, but I could see how someone who treasures all things feline might throw the book down after the first chapter in revulsion. I have to admit that if the animal was changed from cats to dogs I probably would do the same thing. Once the initial "creep-out" factor is overcome, however, there is a lot to be enjoyed in the story. I'm looking forward to seeing what Adrian McKinty comes up with next for the young adult audience.

First I have to tell you how big of a sucker I am for books like this one. I love everything about these types of books. I love the mystery to them, the hardship between the characters, and the suspense in the story! Your classic page turner.

Danny Lopez is the kid in town. But he is not moving to New York City, Seattle, or L.A. He is moving to a very little town just outside Denver, Colorado. And what is in this small town....nothing. Well not nothing, because he is moving there with his mom and step-dad because they are building a new casino and his mom is going to be the manager there. Some think that this is wrong but really don't do anything about it. Well while Danny is here he should make the best of it. He becomes friends with the girl next door and a couple guys down the road. They all go to the same school. This school is not like other schools though. This school has a very strict policy. There rules are: they can not talk while school is in session, they have to where white gloves so they know if you have been doing something that you are not supposed to do, and they learn from scripts providing from the state. But during this time a series of events start to happen. Cats start coming up missing and then come up murdered. What is happening in this small town?

At first when if first started to read this book I thought to myself what is going on? The book started off with a really neat story. The main character goes to a school that is very strict and meets a group of friends that become some of his best friends. Hey it could happen. It does in most books. While at the school Danny befriends the principle by accident. I think he just felt somewhat comfortable with the principle. But things change and this is going to be one of them. Later on in the book the real twist happens....the start killing off cats. Now come on, what did the cats ever do to you. They are cute and cuddly and are great snuggle partners. It was really disturbing to read about a serial cat killer. Yes there were more then one. In the book they talk about the cats being a offering to the demon so that evil can enter the world. This book was going every which way. But the sad part is that the book was very well written and really good.

I know what you are saying....that I just went on and on about things I complained about in the book and you are still saying that they book was good?!?!?!?!? Yes. I would recommend this book to anyone that wants a read the keeps you on your toes. I think that this this book was a really awesome read. It was intriguing and kept you going inside the story. In my opinion that is what every book should have.
