Game Changer

By Neal Shusterman

An ambitious and magnetic novel from the New York Times bestselling Neal Shusterman, about a teenage American football player forced into a series of parallel lives.

Ash is used to taking hits on the field for his high school football team – until he takes one that doesn’t just impact his body, but his whole reality. It starts with one small shift, but with every game, every hit, Ash finds himself pushed through a succession of universes almost-but-not-really like his own, until the small shifts in reality become significant shifts in Ash’s own identity. As Ash experiences life from other perspectives, he starts to question the world he thought he knew, as well as the ones he finds himself catapulted into. For better or worse, the one thing Ash knows is that he’s got to find a way to put things back. A searing exploration of race, gender, sexuality and the nature of privilege.

  • A timely - and very necessary - novel giving insight into how our experience of the world, whether it's because of race, sexuality or gender, affects the opportunities we're given and the ones that are taken away.
  • Neal Shusterman's bestselling Arc of a Scythe series has been sold to 20 territories and counting. A feature film is in development with Universal.
  • A TV adaptation of Game Changer is in development with Netflix. Neal is co-writing this with Brian Yorkey, who adapted 13 Reasons Why for Netflix.
