This was one amazing book! The author was nice enough to send me a copy first off I want to say. This is a great book for young and old. It is I would say an adventure, mystery, fiction.
It is about a boy named Bobby Ether who, one night, is taken from his home and believes he sees his parents die. Thinking he has nowhere to go, he is taken and goes sort of willingly to "The Academy". He does not quite fit in there. But he soon finds the other kids that do not quite fit in and makes good friends.
Again, I do not do spoilers in a review. What happens on this amazing journey is Bobby, finding out who he is, finding out things about his parents, his grandparents, and his extended family he never knew he had.
Bobby, targeted for the Academy from a display he put on that one woman noticed (this is right in the beginning of the book) at Bobby's basketball game. Bobby does have special powers. But not the kind of special powers we are used to seeing in these types of books.
Bobby has to go to regular classes at the academy and classes that teach him how to use his powers.
Go on a journey with Bobby as he finds his family, finds out about how to knock down his emotional walls, find the power within, help his friends, and find out about something big and amazing going on in the world that has been around for a long time and he is now a part of. Friends become enemies, enemies become friends.
You will turn page after page and root for Bobby. I know I did!
I hope there is a sequel!!!
