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

Seventeen babies were born in a Pasidina, CA, hospital fourteen years ago, and seventeen babies all have special powers including Michael Vey. Michael is a smaller than average fourteen-year-old with Tourette's syndrome and  a very big power. He has electrical powers that no one knows about except his mother and his best friend.

Michael thought he was unique, but when he unleashes his powers on a bully, he meets Taylor who has secrets of her own.

Both Taylor and Michael are invited to attend prestigious Elgen Academy, but when they decline, they find out they don't have a choice. If they don't go on their own, they will be made to go by some of the creepiest bad guys I've read about in a long time.

Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25 pretty much has it all: adventure, a little romance, and lots of heart-pounding action. This book is about good vs. evil and how hard it is sometimes to make choices.
Both middle school boys and girls should love this one. We also have the sequel Michael Vey: Rise of the Elgen available in the media center.


  1. This has been really popular in my school library. My only problem with it was that every time the ElectroClan was mentioned, I had to silently sing "ElectroWoman and DynaGirl"!
