Review: Blackout by Robison Wells
I highly recommend this book. The problem is that when I started thinking about the different elements welsl the book in detail, things just didn’t hold up. If an accomplished writer had tackled the concepts within this text, I feel as though they would of had a brilliant opportunity. Jan 24, Jaden Nelson rated it really liked it.

They don’t seem to have a plan and focus on whatever target is convenient. The blog posts in between the chapters were secret messages from Alec, stating what their next target should be. Some were contributed by fellow readers, and a lot were written by the fantastic Recaptains team.

This book felt very X-Men-esque. Is it a war story? I love super power books, so I think I would like that part of the story, but the war seems crazy! Working in a group, bllackout trained teenagers also each happen to have a special power that aids them in their deeds robjson terror.
The audience, however, knows nothing of his mother, why she is a catalyst for him, or why he goes berserk when he hears that they hit Chicago.

I’m one of those people who hlackout enjoy YA though, so maybe YA readers might find this more enjoyable than I did.

And these four are about to find their lives intertwined in a complex web of deception, loyalty, and catastrophic danger—where one wrong choice could trigger an explosion that ends it all.

And when I say Jack is the saving grace, what I mean is, I disliked him less than everybody else. Basically we’ve got these kids who have a virus that gives them powers.
When her alcoholic, good-for-nothing father rats her out for beer money, Aubrey, along with classmate and occasional high school janitor Jack, ends up in a military compound meant to weed out Lambdas, or teens infected with a virus that attacks developing brains.

And as for Aubrey, I had a hard time believing her flippy-floppy conversion that took about 10 pages to go from ignoring Jack because she can’t be seen with the likes of blackotu, to being in love with him. The world set up in this one was really interesting, but I think that my bh is that I didn’t connect with the majority of the characters.

I am still going to give it a try. Andrea The Overstuffed Bookcase. This remind anyone else of The Darkest Minds?
