23: Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25

Product DetailsJust finished reading Richard Paul Evan's new young adult series Michael Vey:  The Prisoner of Cell 25.  Yes, you will like this novel...whether you are male, female, student, or teacher.

This series begins the adventures of the Electroclan, a group of thirteen who were electrified as babies:  Michael, Taylor, and eleven others, all who have just a bit different skill or talent.  Then, there are the normal ones:  Ostin, Jack, and Wade.

Michael, the main character, has Tourettes, which is tremendous trait for an author to place on a character.  A character, one with a disability, who overcomes.  Since Michael's story is told in first-person, the reader enters the brain, the emotions, the mental struggles of this character and "feels" with the character.  (Taylor's story is told in third-person...good example of point of view...just a note to self, the teacher.)  :)

As a teacher, I am excited about the use of this novel as a read-aloud within my thematic units that I am continuing to create, for I believe it will fit nicely within my Pioneer and Survivor units.  Cool!

Yes, you may pre-order this novel here at Amazon!
