My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the first book I have read in a while that had me wanting to read from the very first sentence, so to say the least, I loved this book. It was well-written, and the descriptions did not take away from the action as it does in some books.
Caleb and the Js are very well-rounded characters, and Ms. Blodgett even managed to make Carson and Brett into dynamic characters. Each character is special, except for Brett and Jonesy, and even with their abilities, they are vulnerable. And they makes them believable. Although this is a young-adult novel, the parents actually form real character-units. They aren’t background characters that randomly show up in a chapter here and a chapter there. Caleb’s parents are in the “know,” and they worry about him.
I found myself wanting to know more, especially as the boys team up with the girls, and then the government comes after them. This is definitely a must-read for all ages, even though it is targeted towards young adults.
