Publisher's Summary

My name is Michael Vey, and the story I'm about to tell you is strange. Very strange. It's my story."
To everyone at Meridian High School, Michael Vey is an ordinary 14-year-old. In fact, the only thing that seems to set him apart is the fact that he has Tourette's syndrome. But Michael is anything but ordinary. Michael has special powers. Electric powers.
Michael thinks he's unique until he discovers that a cheerleader named Taylor also has special powers. With the help of Michael's friend, Ostin, the three of them set out to discover how Michael and Taylor ended up this way, but their investigation brings them to the attention of a powerful group who wants to control the electric children - and through them, the world. Michael will have to rely on his wits, powers, and friends if he's to survive.

Your never too old to enjoy a good story

I'm almost embarrassed to admit I not only listened to but really enjoyed this book seeing as it's classified in the young adult genre. I'm 42 and the father of a 12 year old but I couldn't put it down. The story itself is gripping (don't we all wish we had super powers?) and the action is nicely paced. The character development, which is normally lacking in an action novel, was just enough. The narrator was terrific. It's obvious this story will draw comparisons to the TV series Heroes, and I agree with that comparison. I can only assume this story was conceived by the author long before the TV show otherwise I'd be a little disappointed with the "save the cheerleader, save the world" aspect of the Michael Vey story. Surely Mr. Evans could have been more original. But be that as it may, Mr. Evans is on to something. Clearly this will be a multi-volume work and if the first book is any indication, this will be a very popular series. Give it a try. I'll bet you like it and if not, your teenagers certainly will.

young adult novel..

Had I read the synopsis more carefully I would have realized this was a young adults novel. Having said that ( as I'm an old dude ) I was impressed by the narration. It was well time and delivered. The plot, while juvenile, has good depth and pacing. I will definitely recommend this to my teenage sons.
