How did Lev Calder move from an unwillingly escaped Tithe to a clapper? In this revealing short story, Neal Shusterman opens a window on Lev’s adventures between the time he left CyFi and showed up at the Graveyard.

My Thoughts

So – i was quite interested to understand how Lev became a clapper, but i really don’t think that’s what we get in this novella.  Where we are is that we see Lev finding himself on an Indian reservation – a place that potentially will give him solace and freedom from being an AWOL – but that still doesn’t lead me to understand how he became a clapper persay.  What we do get though is a new perspective on life during this time, among a people who value family and culture and history more than anything else, and that’s something that’s quite interesting.

Not much else to say – felt more like a side story than an explanation, but i guess it’ll all come together some how in the coming installments.
