The Prisoner of Cell 25

Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25 by Richard Paul Evans

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A new element of "electricity" in the teen superhero genre. That was a nice twist. Overall, the characters felt a bit worn, with the exception of some aspects of the Michael's character. Dealing with Tourette's--or any disability, for that matter-- in middle school is such a hard thing, and I like how the author dealt with that aspect. Definitely a boy book (that girls would also love). I am recommending this to many of my students this year. Lots of action, a little romance to spice things up. Overall a nice read, but nothing that made me think that this one is a complete standout in this genre, or that left me thinking about it for days after. Some interesting vocabulary was great though. Also, if you're from UT, you'll probably notice some familiar places/things . . .
