Where To Find It
Call number: Teen Fiction
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.
Reviews & Summaries
I read it while I was waiting in line at the Henry Ford Museum to see the original Emancipation Proclamation (it was a 4.5 hour wait to see it). I was riveted from the first page and even though there were conversations going on all around me, I couldn't put the book down long enough to join in. It's just that great!
So if you're looking for an alternative to all the vampires or the "Clique" type books, give Michael Vey a try!
