1950s 1970s Second, I know a lot of people will want to compare this book to Harry Potter, but for me it feltlike Matilda meets X Men First Class, by way of The Adventures of the Bailey School Kids

to strengthen their Ability What exactly is their Ability, you ask Well, it s a combination of telekinesistelepathy mind controland speed readingThe kids are set up as a kind of task force against a set of creepy twins and their adopted gothic mother, a former student left for dead on a mission 30 years ago who is now back for revenge.This is one of the best MG books I ve read in a while It s well written, smart, and has the feel of a modern classic It was just everything that I ve been looking for in a book in this genre AWESOME BOOK The story is about a boy called Chris who finds out he can enter people s minds The minds in The Ability are like cities and each city is different for every person The characters are really believable and interesting For example, at the beginning, you think that Rex is a bully but as you read on you learn that Rex is actually really funny and just gets things wrong Chris has a really hard life but he is such a nice person even though he s gone through everything that he has AWESOME BOOK The story is about a boy called Chris who finds out he can enter people s minds The minds in The Ability are like cities and each city is different for

think anybody who liked The Mysterious Benedict Society or Harry Potter there is no magic in The Ability but there are similarities like it being in England and having special powers will LOVE this 3

will be a 5 star or 1 star book 1 star from adults who are uncomfortable with the dark content and boy is it dark at times and 5 stars from anybody who gets how much kids will like it for exactly that

discuss It also had some interesting concepts with the whole mind thing that even got me thinking And, now this is just a personal thing, but I really liked that it wasn t all informal and slapstick thinklike Harry Potter than Diary of Wimpy Kid.Overall, I have to say this author knew exactly what she was doing when she wrote this she got it just right S is already asking about when the next one will come out The excitement at my school about this author is unprecedented A group of students went to see her speak when she came to visit from England on her book tour and it has had a snowball effect I finally got round to reading it and can see exactly why the book has had such a reaction it is fast paced, full of details about the mind that are original and clever and full of humor There are criticisms I do think that some of the side characters need fleshing out but it is the first in a series The excitement at my school about this author is unprecedented A group of students went to

series and the prologue is a little confusing on first reading but these are just minor issues Personally I loved it great fun and the most awesome concept Even better, it s the first time I ve seen kids this excited about a book since Harry Potter we have five people waiting to take the book out We have ordered a class set for the library and teachers are talking about doing work around it next year to take advantage of the buzz around this Next HUGE book wait and see
