Best book ever according to my son He got his copy a day before release and, not only did he finish it but he s already started to read it again that s how much he loved it.I can see how this will be a 5 star or 1 star book 1 star from adults who are uncomfortable with the dark content and boy is it dark at times and 5 stars from anybody who gets how much kids will like it for exactly that reason It s funny too.On a side note, from a parent point of view, it brought up some great issues for us to discuss It also had some interesting concepts with the whole mind thing that even got me thin
The excitement at my school about this author is unprecedented A group of students went to see her speak when she came to visit from England on her book tour and it has had a snowball effect I finally got round to reading it and can see exactly why the book has had such a reaction it is fast paced, full of details about the mind that are original and clever and full of humor There are criticisms I do think that some of the side characters need fleshing out but it is the first in a series and the prologue is a little confusing on first reading but these are just minor issues Personally I loved it great fun and the most awesome concept Even b
I am a total sucker for middle grade novels about special schools and kids with powers Perhaps it s because I grew up reading Harry Potter, and am still on the hunt for that elusive book that will mean as much to me, though I know that will likely not happen, because I m an adult now and less able to appreciate the magic Still, for all that I m not likely to find something as amazing as Harry Potter is, my middle grade choices have yet to fail me The Ability is a darker than usual middle grade novel with humor and action aplenty.The main hero of The Ability is young Christopher Lane, just turning twelve years old and at wit s end for how to take care of himself and his mother, ruined by the death of his father Like so many scrappy heroes, everything falls to Chris He struggles in school, marked as a troublemaker and is finally expelled for a weird incident where he somehow beats up a bully without touching him But, thankfully, salvation comes in the form of a test to study at an elite, strange prep school, Myers Holt Academy, which Chris passes with flying colors After his test, the proctor presents him with a surprise birthday cake.Note Chris is not a wizard.Now, there are certainly a few shades of Harry Potter obviously, like the cake, but The Ability does not read lik

I haven t read this yet but my 12 year old just finished it today and is in love with it What I like, as a parent, is that this book has been the catalyst for some of the deepest conversations about et
Don t and I m saying this as an English teacher get all literary on this This is fast and full of detail the kind of book kids can read again and again It might not win any literary awards but that s fine by me, not all books worth reading have to The kind of kids I teach boys mostly NEED books like this More serious and thought provoking than M
this book is soooooooo amazing I can t wait for the next one is ernest is going to be evil now I really enjoyed everything about this book First off, the style reminded me of the kind of books I read in elementary school that were written in that magical period of the 1950s 1970s Second, I know a lot of people will want to compare this book to Harry Potter, but for me it felt like Matilda meets X Men First Class, by way of The Adventures of the Bailey School Kids series.So here s the premise 6 twelve year olds are chosen to attend a special school where they can learn to strengthen their Ability What exactly is their Ability, you ask Well, it s a combination of telekinesistelepathy mind controland speed readingThe kids are set up as a kind of task force against a set of creepy twins and their adopted gothic mother, a former student left for dead on a mission 30 years ago who is now back for revenge.This is one of the best MG books I ve read in a
