[DEBUT] What child doesn't dream of being a superhero one day, with the power of superstrength or the ability to move an object with only your mind? Children with disabilities are no different in this regard, and in this refreshing first novel, Scott tells of a child discovering his gifts through the eyes of Phillip Sallinger, a blind 12-year-old boy. Readers of all ages, genders, and abilities will connect to this incredibly action-packed tale and its wild roller-coaster of emotions and surprises. Belief in yourself is the main message, sent loud and clear. Scott's debut is smart, thought-provoking, and unique, and readers won't want to put this eye-opening, explosive story down.
VERDICT Recommended for adult as well as YA sf collections and fans of Ransom Riggs's Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.
