Michael Vey : the prisoner of cell 25 by Richard Paul Evans

Reviewed By: Teen Librarian

Michael Vey is a teenage boy who hides his electrical super powers from his fellow high school students. Everything changes when he realizes the cheerleader he has a crush on has been concealing uncanny abilities, too. The pair realize they are unwitting pawns in a sinister conspiracy, and find themselves pursued by a secret agency that wants to control them and exploit their powers for mysterious purposes.

As a long-time fan of comic books, I felt very much in my element with this book. It's filled with superhero- and supervillain-like characters, and action-packed with lots of battle scenes where the characters use their powers to fight each other. The relationships and setting reminded me a lot of the X-Men.

Why I Picked it Up: We read this in our Roselle Middle School Book Discussion Group, Chat Pack.

Why I Finished It: Great characters. Compelling, fast-paced storytelling.

I’d Give This Book to: Younger teens who like action and/or comic books.
