"My name is Michael Vey, and the story I’m about to tell you is strange. Very strange. It’s my story."
To everyone at Meridian High School, Michael Vey is an ordinary fourteen-year-old. In fact, the only thing that seems to set him apart is the fact that he has Tourette’s syndrome. But Michael is anything but ordinary. Michael has special powers. Electric powers.
Michael thinks he's unique until he discovers that a cheerleader named Taylor also has special powers. With the help of Michael’s friend, Ostin, the three of them set out to discover how Michael and Taylor ended up this way, but their investigation brings them to the attention of a powerful group who wants to control the electric children – and through them the world. Michael will have to rely on his wits, powers, and friends if he’s to survive.

"Short chapters with intriguing titles, excellent writing, and engaging characters make this action-packed story a compulsively entertaining read . . . This first book of a planned series has a satisfying conclusion but leaves the reader determined to discover what the next book, Rise of the Electroclan, has in store for our young hero and his friends. Though contemporary and edgy, this book contains no bad language, sex, or gratuitous violence. This is a book Rick Riordan’s fans will want to read." —VOYA
"Like Richard Evans’s adult novels, this title has a message of hope and love. However, this book also has pure adventure, science fiction, and creepy bad guys . . . Readers will be looking forward to the next book in the series." —Library Media Connection
