Review by David Edwards.
This book is about a kid named Michael Vey who has Tourette syndrome, and he can produce electricity from his body. The only people that know about this power is his mom, his best friend, Ostin, and the popular cheerleader, Tayler, who also has special powers. They find out that the reason they have these powers is because of an accident with a machine. When Michael's mom and Tayler are kidnapped, Michael, Ostin, and some classmates have to save them and avoid getting caught by bad people.

I really like this book and the rest of the series. The main problem I have with it is that things just happen so smoothly. The main character gets way too strong in a small period of time.

I would recommend this book for grades 5th through 8th because of the violence and torture.

Review by Pete Timberlake.
This book is about a boy who can zap people with lightning. He has to fight against the people who want to use him for evil. It is very exciting. It would be for middle schoolers.

Review by David Edwards.
It's about a kid that has shocking powers and gets other friends. I don't want to spoil the rest. I liked it more than the rest of the series because the rest is just death and fighting. Most people like exciting. I do too, but it's too much fighting. This one isn't that violent.
