So technically, can I move my copy of the book out of my TBR pile and count that? Hmm, ethical challenges for my reading challenges.
Anyway, Forester's book is about kids with superpowers and the government conspiracies against them, so YAY! Pulling it down a bit was Piper's homespun accent and naive pollyanna-ish demeanor, but as long as the scientists kept messing with the magic kids I kept turning pages. After a bit of a soggy middle, the final action scenes and split second plot worked really well, and I even enjoyed the happy-ever-after bits. The door is open to a sequel, and if I convince my older son to try this book he'll probably make sure we find it. The cover doesn't really appeal to his geeky soul; it's soft and flowing rather than stark and conspiracy-ish.
Also, I'm cranky that I can't identify Piper's home state. West Virginia? Kentucky mountains? Argh!
