Michael Vey The Prisoner of Cell 25 by Richard Paul Evans, 326 pages, read by Leslie, on 05/04/2013

The Prisoner of Cell 25 (Michael Vey, #1)

To everyone at Meridian High School, fourteen-year-old Michael Vey is nothing special, just the kid who has Tourette’s syndrome. But in truth, Michael is extremely special–he has electric powers. Michael thinks he is unique until he discovers that a cheerleader named Taylor has the same mysterious powers. With the help of Michael’s friend, Ostin, the three of them set out to discover how Michael and Taylor ended up with their abilities, and their investigation soon brings them to the attention of a powerful group who wants to control the electric teens–and through them, the world.

Another teen angst but this time with super powers book.  I enjoyed it but don’t know that I will read any of the sequels.  Isn’t this what we all would wish for, if we are the student who is bullied every day at school, to have a secret super power?  In this case, a few teens that have acquired electrical powers, of different scope, who can either take over the world or become it’s savior.  Teens will enjoy the fantasy involved but as I said, I doubt I’ll read the sequel.
