This week I finished up the “brain transplant” trilogy by reading Runaway by Meg Cabot. A delightful and silly teen read with a marvelous plot to snatch other people’s bodies and make $ selling them to the elderly who want their brain moved to some better real estate. And despite the strength of the powers set against her, our heroine was victorious, although she never did get her old body back… What did I learn from reading this week? That if you reveal plot elements slowly over a length of time, and make the characters truly startled over the weirdness of the events unfolding, anything can seem plausible in book form. One must just have the characters do the scoffing about how unlikely the scenario is, then the reader doesn’t have to and can just sit back and enjoy the ride.
