I love a good plot twist. And I love a good adventure. But there are few books that really WOW me and take me to a place that I didn't already see coming. I guess that is what happens when you read so much...kinda stinks sometimes. But every once in a while, you'll get that ending or plot twist that just completely blows your mind. The following books...consider me mind blown.
I picked up this book because I saw that Mark Frost wrote it and I was a huge fan of Twin Peaks. This may very well be my favorite fall book so far. Will West has always been told by his parents to live his life completely cautiously because he has a bit of a touch of power, whether intellectual or athletic, Will is pretty much a supernatual powerhouse. One day, Will trips up and scores off the charts on a nationwide exam and a private institution comes calling for him. Think X-Men Academy. All sounds fine and dandy but all of a sudden, Will's parents don't seem like his parents and his dad sends him a cryptic message making Will think that something very, very wrong is happening and it's up to Will to figure it out and stop it. SO STINKING GOOD...I read this book in a day and was wanting more! Buy it. You teens will love you for it. (ISBN: 9780375870453, Release Date: 9/25/12, Random House Children's Books)
