The Prisoner of Cell 25
by Richard Paul Evans
Michael Vey, book one
If you love adventure and people with crazy powers, you need to check out this book. I was surprised how easily I was drawn into it. I found myself turning pages faster and faster...
Michael was a good character. Not perfect, by any means, and he acknowledges that... but he loves his friends and his mom with everything he has, and he tries to do the right thing whenever he can. He also has the crazy power to shock people, like an electric eel! Wowza! I kept thinking how much it would hurt to get shocked by him. *shudders*
Though I've never read anything by this author before (his adult books are a different style), I will definitely be making time sometime this fall to squeeze in book two, Rise of the Elgen.
