Kevin Tobin is a relatively ordinary 12-year-old dealing with the aftermath of his father's death in a mountain biking accident near their home in Boulder, Colorado. To escape from his emotional turmoil, Kevin has developed his imagination into a dangerous foil and a powerful ally. While he antagonizes his sister through his superhero antics on an average Wednesday morning, his ability to escape inside a character's head become critical to his survival after his life is once-again turned upside down a year after his father's death. A mysterious package arrives in the mail, Kevin and his best friend are hunted down by a ruthless villain set upon world domination, and after enlisting Kevin's teenage sister and her pizza-delivery boyfriend in a battle for control over time itself, the secret of Kevin's whole existence is revealed to him by a source we never expected.

This book is defiantly an adventure! It went so many different ways and took me on one amusing ride that was for sure. Kevin’s Point of View is defiantly a book for all ages to enjoy. It taps into our imagination in some wacky ways (while your following Kevin’s imagination and the story as well).
There were so many different characters that were captured perfectly with so many different personalities (if that makes sense). I loved Kevin and his many imaginations he was just so fun to read and kept the story going. All the secondary characters were well rounded and also enjoyable to read.
This book was hilarious to say the least, I found myself laughing out loud more than once. The book captured my attention in the beginning, but around the middle I kind of lost interest a bit simply because of how long the chase was, then my attention picked up then again at the end and held until it until the last page.
If you want a good laugh and one hell of an adventure I would pick up this book.
