Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25

Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25
Author: Richard Paul Evans
Teen Fiction

My Recommended Age: 12 and Up

Ever since I saw The Incredibles, I have dreamed of all the great super-powers that would help me in my quest to be Super Mom. Never once did I consider anything with electricity. After reading this book, I am completely reconsidering all the benefits of electromagnetism.

Fourteen Year Old, Michael Vey is different, not only because of his Tourette's Syndrome, but because he has electricity coursing through his veins. He has spent his life hiding his gift from others, but when some bullies push him too far, he shocks them and starts a wave of events meant to trap him and use him, as well as others like him, as weapons.

This fast paced YA novel is very well written and an exciting read! My 13 year old son, read this in a matter of three hours, then immediately asked if he could start it again. It is written in such a way that the plot seems not only feasible, but definitely plausible. It is an intense read, but Evans does a great job at adding humor to keep it satisfying. It is clean and appropriate for teens of all ages as well as their parents.

I enjoyed it and can't wait for the next one.

Happy Reading
