My book talks are coming at you from a librarian, not a reviewer. You won’t find me talking about style or craft, why I think this could’ve been better or what worked or didn’t work. I only do book talks on books I liked and want other people to know about. So if it’s here I probably think it won’t injure your brain if you read it.
You wouldn’t think that bus accident on the way home from a field trip would give you super powers, but you’d be wrong. Only the losers got jammed into the second bus taking middle schoolers to the museum. Well, the losers and the most popular girl in school, who is in trouble for sneaking off to find an awesome jewelry store.
The fat kid, the social outcast, the super nerd, the quiet artsy girl, and the It Girl all managed to survive the crash, and don’t even notice their weird new powers until a few days later. And powers are great but… when you can teleport (only four inches to the left), read minds (if they’re thinking about directions), tear apart cars with your strength (but only in your thumbs), and change your eye color at will (and sometimes against your will)… it makes those powers seem… mighty odd.
