Michael Vey The Prisoner of Cell 25 by Richard Paul Evans
Richard Paul Evans is the author of all those romantic Christmas books. This is very different. It is the first of seven books in a series geared towards YA's. The attempt was to give them something compelling to read which displays good values.
Michael Vey appears to be an average 14-year old boy living in Meridian, Idaho with his mother. But Michael is anything but ordinary, he is one of 17 'electric' children in the world and people are looking for him...bad people.
I was entranced with the story and found myself wondering what I would do if put in the same situations. What choice would I make?
5 Stars (Rated PG - for tense situations and some violence.)
