Michael Vey: Prisoner of Cell 25

by Richard Paul Evans

HOW IT GOES

Michael Vey seemed like just a small town teenager with Tourette's syndrome who didn't have many friends. What they didn't know was that Michael Vey was very special along with his best friend and love, Taylor Ridley. These kids, along with 13 others, had extraordinary electric powers that made them unique among their basic peers. During the course of this remarkable book, Taylor, Michael, Ostin, and a few other prisoners attempt to break free from the antagonist, The Elgen Academy who try to kidnap all of the electro children, and use their powers for evil. Throughout this action-packed novel, the three best friends become closer than they would imagine in an attempt to save innocent people's lives.

What the people think

"My kind of book-- fast, funny, and strange. Once Michael's astounding powers are revealed, the shocks keep coming chapter after chapter."
