Synopsis

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.

Setting
The setting takes place in the future. Michael Vey was born in Pasadena, California. He lives in Meridian, Idaho with his mom. There isn't a specific places in were the story takes places it goes from Idaho to California to a pizzeria but it keeps the book interesting.
Characters
Michael Vey- seems like a ordinary kid. But has superpowers that no one knows about but his mother. He can shock people the same velocity as a electric eel and is only getting stronger.
Ostin- is very intelligent has a high IQ making up 6% of smart people. Is Michael's best friend and next door neighbor.
Taylor- popular cheerleader who also has similar powers as Michael only she can read minds and erase memories for a second. She is also Michael's crush.
Mom- Michael's mother is his main priority in the book. His mom has moved houses and jobs to keep Michael's secret discreet.
Good Points
Michael Vey is a great book. I'm not really a fan of reading but this book kept me up all night. The plot and ending was so surprising. It's a book were you can't really predict the ending because it's changed up and keeps bewilderment towards the reader. The writing format is also interesting it's written in first POV but changes up half way in the book to 2nd POV. The way the characters talk and act is something that a younger reader can relate too because it deals with family, friends, and school.
Bad Points
The only thing I didn't like was how long it took for the next book to come out.
Plot Summary
Michael Vey is a story about a kid who has tortuttes syndrome and electrical superpowers. When a drastic event happens Michael has to face it with his best friend Ostin and crush Taylor. If they fail to do so many people will get hurt including they're families.
Ending
The ending ended on a cliff hanger but I thought it was a perfect place to stop. It keeps the reader wondering what's going to happen next and how.
