Reviewed by Christina Tsichlis for TeensReadToo.comSHADOWS IN THE TWILIGHT by Henning Mankell is written using the distinctive voice of the main character, Joel. This is a companion book to A BRIDGE TO THE STARS.This is a story that asks philosophical questions and does it in a way everyone can understand. Best known for his crime novels for adults, Mankell will win the young adult reader over, as well. As the author is Swedish, it has a decidedly European flare in style as well as setting that the reader will find refreshing and honest.Some of the questions addressed are faith, miracles, gender, and when to make the choice of staying silent or telling the truth.

Told in the first person, the reader gets to see inside Joels head and understand the questions and the changes in his life from the boys perspective. It is a shrewdly told tale of a boy who thinks that he might have experienced divine intervention, and what happens when he tries to prove that he deserved said intervention through an elaborate scheme to do good.Through the eyes of Joel we see a world created with magic, imagination, reality, and possible divinity.

The reader becomes sucked into Joels world to the point where nothing he says seems improbable, only interesting and special. It is a book that asks the big questions and does it creatively, beautifully, and interestingly.
