Publisher's Summary

The night Russ Becker witnesses a strange astronomical event, his world changes forever. Before long Russ discovers he's developed incredible superpowers, and he's not the only one. Three other young people - beautiful Mallory, arrogant Jameson, and mysterious Nadia - have had the same experience and all of them now have powers of their own. Mallory can control peoples' minds, Jameson moves objects with his thoughts, and Nadia has empathic abilities.
At first the four relish their newfound gifts, but things become serious when they learn they are being hunted by an organization that wants them for its own nefarious purposes. When Russ's family is threatened, he's forced into action. What transpires will change all of them in ways they never imagined.

Russ has been suffering with insomnia for a while now and the only thing that seems to help is a late night walk. During one of these walks, he witnesses a strange phenomena, lights spiraling down from the sky. Initially he thinks, meteor shower but when he hears nothing about it the next day, he's a little confused. Why wouldn't anyone else have seen or heard it?? Next thing he knows, he's contacted by a girl in his school and what he finds out changes his life forever.

This is a solid start to what seems to be a fun and energetic series. Karen McQuestion did great job setting the scene and introducing her fantastic characters.

Plot wise, it took a while to get going, but once it did, it was entertaining and fairly fast paced. The idea of the powers happening to the kids and what happens next was intriguing! We are left with a lot of unanswered questions though, which I hope will get answered in future books, like, what exactly are those lights? what do the Associates want? why do only some of them get powers?

Character wise, I liked Russ, he is a typical teen, though I did find it hard to believe that he was such a good teen!! My 2 teens aren't bad, but they aren't as good as him!! Lol. His crush on one of the characters was adorable too, though I did love seeing his friendship blossom with the other character more. Let's hope it's going in the direction I think it's going!!

Anyway, this was an enjoyable listen and I definitely look forward to more in this series. It captured my attention and I'm interested to see what happens with the characters!

Maxwell Glick made for effortless listening!! He did a great job with the characterisations and gave each character their own voice. I had no trouble following who was talking and enjoyed his narration.

A lovely YA book

This was a book I certainly would have flipped over when I was still in school. It is well balanced and flows forward without needing to force it. There was some cheese jokes in there, which I thought were kind of funny but are not for everyone.

I felt like the narrator was perfect for this book. Did an excellent job on distinguishing characters and bringing the book to life.
