Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25

veyEvans, Richard Paul. Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25.  New York: Simon Pulse, 2011. Print. ISBN: 978-1-4516-5650-3. Hardcover.  $14.23.

Annotation: Being different can be tough.  Being different can also mean that you are unique, maybe even extraordinary.

Book talk: Michael Vey is not just a skinny fourteen-year-old boy with Tourette’s Syndrome.  He is so much more…he has potential – kinetic energy potential.

His potential is about to be realized when his mom is kidnapped and his girlfriend Taylor disappears – it is time to no longer be meek and pushed around, no more secrets, no more holding back.

Now someone is coming for Michael because he is special and they want what he has, and they will not only find him, they are willing to use dark ways to bend him…break him.

Who is hunting him and why? Michael will have to rely on his inner-strength, his powers, his intelligence, and unlikely friends if he is to survive being  The Prisoner of Cell 25.

This was a great read!  Very easy and fun to read. I can’t wait to read the next two books in the series. Recommended for ages 12-15
