Convince us to read the book: This book is the book for you, if you enjoyed reading The 39 Clues, X-men, or just like to read about crime and mutants. The story is written in third person, starting out with a young girl who was born with abilities. But the thing is...she's a criminal. Join her and her friends in this comic themed, law-and-order journey, as they discover something...well, someONE, who will change their terms of business forever.
Memorable or Forgettable: I enjoyed how there were few abilities in the overall story. There weren't too few, but there weren't so many that you just got bored of it all. The storyline is intriguing, and the series of events had me reading; just TRYING to guess what would happen next.
Cover: The cover portrayed the book’s contents perfectly.  At first I was a little skeptical but as I read on, I understood the cover.
Age Range: 12 through 13
Quality: 4Q Better than most
Popularity: 2P Only for special interest
