everyone at Meridian High School, Michael Vey is an ordinary
fourteen-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.

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

""Have you found the last two?""
I started this book when it first came out but couldn't get past the first chapter. I decided to give it another try. I couldn't put the book down.
The story is about Michael, a teen boy with Tourette's and the power of electricity. He meets another 'electric child' and find they have a few things in common. When Michael's mom is kidnapped, he must rescue her. He meets the man who wants to use the 'electric children' to rule the world.
Mr. Evans has created characters that you either like or hate. There is depth to the characters. The story flows and it's hard to put the book down after Michael meets Taylor, the cheerleader who has powers too.
Great book for boys. Girls will like it too.
