Are you looking for a book of science fiction? Well if you are stop right here. Michael Vey the Prisoner of Cell 25 is its name and it is written by Richard Paul Evans. Michael Vey is a fourteen year old boy who is considered very puny and weak by a big bully named Jack. Michael changes, he becomes stronger and stronger every day. I don’t mean muscles - I am talking about his special powers. Michael Vey has a special power. What is it? Michael also has a huge crush on a girl named Taylor Ridley, a star cheerleader. She has a special power too. Ostin, Michael’s best friend, is a freaky genius; however, his mom spelled Austin wrong, “Ostin”! Later in the book they meet a man named Dr. Hatch. I do not like him, because he is evil. Richard Paul Evans’ message is good versus evil. This is the book for you if you like people who are super heroes, but not in a comic book way. This is a comedy, adventurous, thrilling, exciting book that takes place in Idaho in the first half and Pasadena, California in the second half. Science fiction books remind me of a great imagination, when the author’s mind tells about what a world could be like. All of a sudden Michael’s mom gets kidnapped and Michael gets captured and put into a cell. Will Michael get out and save his mom?? I would highly recommend this book. Remember that this book may not be available in your school library, but can be found at your public library.
