Edison Jones is an extremely bright and talented 12 year old who has spent less time with his peers and more time inventing and evolving. As we move along in the story we get to know our "side characters" and they both fit and don't in their cliche character types. Cheerleaders, jocks, and bullies - they can be seen as cliches, but they are such for a reason, right? At one point or another, I believe we have all identified with what each of those types mean...for better or worse. I find myself wanting to give some readers a heads up about this as I know that the description of bullying or being placed in a stereotype can be quite triggering for some.
I'm still new to the middle grade world, but I enjoyed the characters and the overall story and writing of Edison Jones. My favorite part of the book, however, was Edison Jones himself. I truly appreciate when authors give their characters some growth, and that is what I believe Clifton has done for Edison Jones. The isolation of being different to the evolution of growing as a person and having friends is truly a magnificent theme to read about.
