This book was a little slow to start, but once it got started, it was hard to put down. The characters were interesting, especially the teens living in Dr. Hatch's laboratory. The teens powers were all very different, including the way they used their powers for good or evil. I liked the way the bullies in the story became the ones helping Michael on his mission. The only thing I didn't like was the almost sadistic side of power being shown at the end of the book.
I enjoyed the book and would recommend it to adults and teens who enjoy science fiction/fantasy or action/adventure. At 326 pages, it is a more difficult book for reluctant readers, but with a great book talk or movie trailer, many would be willing to give it a shot.
