The one character that doesn't directly tie to someone Caden knows is the captain. Throughout the book, I came to sense that the captain represents Caden's illness. This made it so much more interesting to read. Overall, Challenger Deep is a compelling novel that touches the heart. Neal Shusterman uses mental illness as a means to discuss truth and reality in his book Challenger Deep. The focus of the novel consists of Caden's struggles with mental illness, but enough information is given so that readers are aware of the struggles of others struggling with mental illness as well. Fantasy becomes reality in an exploration of mental illness based partly on the experiences of the author's son, who is also the book's illustrator. For 14-year-old Caden Bosch, his gradual descent into schizophrenia is a quest to reach the bottom of Challenger Deep, the deepest place on Earth. The Captain of the expedition is accompanied by a security parrot, a mental mirror for Dr. Poirot. It is Dr. Poirot who comes to treat Caden at Seaview. It's clear the Shusterman wrote Challenger Deep from a place of deep love, as a testament to his son's strength and to show that there is hope even when things get really dark.

The White Plastic Kitchen is another realit that Caden often lives in. The name speaks for itself: the kitchen is immaculate with all white appliances, walls, and floors. It might be the sedation room in the hospital, since the purity is so fals and harsh (the calmness that comes from the medicine).
