Today Gentle Readers we have another teen focused young adult supernatural book. I picked this on up for free from a mailing list I am on. I thought that it would be something I could screen for content and maybe get my son to read so he isn’t on the video games as much. I think I will have a winner here.
Russ Becker is your typical teenage insomniac. I was always a night owl so I could relate a bit to his plight.When one of his late night walks leads him up close and personal with what looks like a meteor shower, everything changes. Russ finds out about group of teens his age that all have the same problem, and solved it all the same way. They also have another secret in common, they all experienced a light show similar to Russ.
Now Russ, Mallory, Jameson, and Nadia have something else in common, they all developed special powers after their exposure to whatever the light and rocks were. With great power comes an organization designed to exploit those who are gifted in this way. As Russ tries to sort out his new reality and the hidden world he has been exposed to, secrets are brought to light. Will Russ be able to continue his previously unremarkable life? Or is he destined for other things?
Come along for the ride that Karen takes us on in Russ’s quest of self discovery. If you are still a kid at heart, there is entertainment to be found in these pages.
