Today, Jacob K. shares about the Michael Vey series:


Michael Vey is a fun, action packed series.  The series starts back in the first book when failed technology kills all but 20ish kids born in 11 days. It turns out the kids that stayed alive are special. As you can probably tell from the book covers, Michael has the power to absorb and generate electricity, but the other kids have different powers. The series go off the tracks when Dr. Hatch kidnaps Taylor (one of the other electric kids and Michael’s friend). Read now to find out more.

Mr. E: Nice job, Jacob. I’m including the official book blurb from Barnes and Noble below. I’ll plan on showing the book trailers on Friday for {BOOKflix Friday}.

The Prisoner of Cell 25 (Michael Vey Series #1)

My name is Michael Vey, and the story I’m about to tell you is strange. Very strange. It’s my story.

To everyone at Meridian High School, Michael Vey is an ordinary fourteen-year-old. In fact, the only thing that seems to set him apart is the fact that he has Tourette’s syndrome. But Michael is anything but ordinary. Michael has special powers. Electric powers.

Michael thinks he’s unique until he discovers that a cheerleader named Taylor also has special powers. With the help of Michael’s friend, Ostin, the three of them set out to discover how Michael and Taylor ended up this way, but their investigation brings them to the attention of a powerful group who wants to control the electric children – and through them the world. Michael will have to rely on his wits, powers, and friends if he’s to survive.

  2. Interestingly enough, I read “Outcasts United” over the weekend! I bought it for my 6th and 7th graders- but so far they have both refused to read it. I thought it was a great story that they would really enjoy- considering they are both soccer players. I was never a soccer player, but I liked the story anyway.

    • I’m a little over halfway through and am enjoying it. I’ll be looking up some videos and author information about it for sure.

      Thanks for joining the conversation 🙂
