What book am I eagerly anticipating at this moment? Why it just so happens to be…
by Scott Westerfeld, Margo Lanagan, and Deborah Biancotti
Releases September 29th, 2015 from Simon Pulse
Ethan, aka “Scam,” has a way with words. When he opens his mouth, whatever he wants you to hear comes out. But Ethan isn’t just a smooth talker. He has a unique ability to say things he doesn’t consciously even know. Sometimes the voice helps, but sometimes it hurts – like now, when the voice has lied and has landed Ethan in a massive mess. So now Ethan needs help. And he needs to go to the last people who would ever want to help him – his former group of friends, the self-named “zeros” who also all possess similarly double-edged abilities, and who are all angry at Ethan for their own respective reasons. Brought back together by Scam’s latest mischief, they find themselves entangled in an epic, whirlwind adventure packed with as much interpersonal drama as mind-bending action.
Another “powers” novel, but I like powers books, so I’m not complaining. I think this is also a dystopia? Well, Zeroes sounds like it could be pretty unique. I enjoyed Scott Westerfeld’s Leviathan but wasn’t a huge fan of Uglies. I haven’t heard of Margo Lanagan or Deborah Biancotti, to be completely honest. I’m looking forward to exploring some new authors and hopefully reading a pretty interesting book about kids with superpowers.
Are you looking forward to reading Zeroes?
